Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza – Virtual Tour

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is located at the very spot from which Lee Harvey Oswald, the presumptive assassin, shot and killed President Kennedy in 1963. The museum uses historic films, photographs, artifacts, and displays to document the events of the assassination.

The Museum is located on the sixth floor of the Dallas County Administration Building, formerly the Texas School Book Depository, in downtown Dallas, overlooking Dealey Plaza at the intersection of Elm and Houston Streets.

The museum examines the life, times, death, the government investigations that followed, and the historical legacy of the tragedy of United States President John F. Kennedy.
