The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicles the assassination and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. The Sixth Floor Museum is located on the sixth floor of an early 20th century warehouse known in 1963 as the Texas School Book Depository.

The Sixth Floor Exhibition:

"John F. Kennedy and the Memory of a Nation" is the permanent historical exhibition that examines the life, death, and legacy of the 35th U.S. President. From his 1960 presidential campaign through his influence on current events, the exhibit features documentary films, historic footage, hundreds of photographs, and artifacts. Two areas that appear as they did on November 22, 1963, highlight the exhibit: the sniper's perch and the staircase area where the sniper exited the sixth floor and a rifle was found. Also on display are cameras used in Deadley Plaza on that fateful day and a scale model of Deadley Plaza created by the FBI for use by the Warren Commission.
