Phone: (214) 747-6660 --

Statement of Purpose:

History museum. A permanent educational exhibition examining the life, times, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy.

Highlights & Collections:

The Museum is located on the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository building where a sniper's nest was found after the shooting.

The Museum takes visitors back into the 1960's, through the trip to Dallas, the assassination, and the quarter century of investigations that followed. It ends with information and commentary on the legacy, to the nation and the world of John F. Kennedy's programs, his life and his death.

Nearly 400 historic photographs, original interviews, artifacts, 40 minutes of specially commissioned documentary films and interpretive displays are arranged to help those who remember come to grips with a powerful event, and to help educate younger audiences about the meaning of an unforgettable chapter in American history.

An AUDIO TOUR, including oral history interviews with many of the participants in the events of the era, gives added dimension to the experience. At the conclusion of the tour, visitors may write their thoughts in memory books, which remain an integral part of the historic record.

The AUDIO TOUR is available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish. A special audio tour for Children (available only in English) helps the very young visitor (ages 5-12) to better understand the Museum and it's historic significance.

No original evidence is on display; all materials are suitable for family viewing.
