Description

from JFK Assassination Walking Tour
During our journey (we will walk around 1.5 miles), your tour guide will revisit the events leading up to November 22nd, 1963 and beyond to provide perspective and new insight into this tragic, very human drama. Most people are familiar with the Sixth Floor Museum (the site from which Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly fired the deadly shots), but we will also show you the many other places around Dallas associated with the assassination that are just as important.
This walking tour includes exclusive access to Oswald's Rooming House (we will arrive to the house via the Dallas city streetcar). We will also visit the location where Oswald's infamous rifle picture was taken. Our last stop will be at the Texas Theatre where the alleged murderer was captured. At the end of the walk, you can return with us to Dealey Plaza or stay and explore the Bishop Arts District (we will give you recommendations for lunch).
You can purchase an entrance fee to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza as part of this tour. After our tour (2 hours) we will leave you at the museum entrance. You can skip the line and go directly to the visitors’ desk to gain access to the museum and collect your headsets equipment for a self-guided tour. The Sixth floor Museum visit generally takes from 40-60 minutes.
