November 22, 1963, was a day that shocked the nation and forever altered Dallas’ place in American history, when President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed as his motorcade made its way through downtown city streets. Today the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the city, attracting history buffs who pore over the museum’s collection of photos, newspaper clippings and artifacts that chronicle JFK’s life and death. For an eerie moment, you can peer through the window where the sniper stood on that historic day.

Admission to the museum includes an audio guide narrated by Pierce Allman, the first journalist to broadcast from the Texas School Book Depository on the day of the shooting. The guide also includes excerpts from other radio and broadcast reports of the event.
