Concierge.com's insider take:
History doesn't get much more vivid than this high-quality, nonexploitative museum exploring the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Located on the sixth floor of the infamous Texas Schoolbook Depository building, the museum features the actual corner window from which Lee Harvey Oswald fired the fatal shots, with a glassed-in re-creation of the barricade of boxes found on November 22. From the next window you can see an Oswald's-eye view of the route the president's motorcade took through Dealey Plaza. Exhibits feature radio and television broadcasts from the fateful day and artifacts such as the camera that recorded the Zapruder film and the forensic model of the assassination site used in the FBI investigation.
Open Tuesdays through Sundays 10 am to 6 pm, Mondays noon to 6 pm.
