AOL Travel Editor’s Review

It’s a strange experience to be confronted with the infamous Grassy Knoll on the corner of Houston and Elm streets and the notorious Texas School Book Depository. The scene is so familiar. Dallas struggled for a long time with this somber site and only opened the Sixth Floor Museum in 1989. The museum traces JFK’s presidency through speeches and footage, culminating in the actual sniper’s nest with the scene just as it was on the fateful day. Detailed journal pages from witnesses and doctors bring the day and its events to life for those who remember it and those too young to do so.
