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.

6th floor of the old Texas School Book Depository.

The Sixth Floor

Admission for adults $13.50. Guys outside of 6th floor sell an informative paper with pictures for a $5.00 "donation." He provided more information than the official tour. Can take pictures from Dealey outside of window. Parking ranges from $3-10 dollars. No change, so bring ones.
