The Sixth Floor.

The Sixth Floor

You can now take non-flash photos in The Sixth Floor Museum! It's an amazing place. Lots of big panels with pictures and stories of Kennedy's political rise to the presidency, his brief stint as commander-in-chief, and that fateful day in Dallas. No detail is left unturned. The exhibits include the President's table setting for the fundraising luncheon where he never arrived.

The Sixth Floor

At The Sixth Floor, you can't take pictures on the sixth floor, but you can right above, on the seventh.

Texas School Book Depository 6th floor window.

The Sixth Floor

Very powerful, very moving, especially the corner where the shot was taken, set up as it was that day. No pics allowed on the 6th floor; can take pics with no flash on the 7th floor.

[Tracey, 08/08/2012]

Oh yeah, 7th floor, real interesting, only one floor above the one where you really want to take pictures.
