The Sixth Floor Museum is located in the Texas School Book Depository on Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, the site of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The museum chronicles the Kennedy assassination and examines the Kennedy legacy. The collection includes photos, video and audio recordings. From the sixth floor, you can see how close the Kennedy motorcade came to the building and the so-called “sniper’s nest” where Lee Harvey Oswald was waiting.
