Every school kid knows what happened in Dallas on 22 November 1963—and the majority of Americans (60 percent) still believe that Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination of President Kennedy was part of a bigger conspiracy. If you’re one of them, you’re in the right place. The infamous Texas School Book Depository is now The Sixth Floor Museum, a world-class center dedicated to telling the story from every angle. Poke through 40,000 artifacts and stand at the exact window Oswald fired from, then head to the grassy knoll below to make up your own mind over the “second shooter.” Afterwards, board the JFK & Dealey Plaza bus tour to explore your theories first-hand, taking in key sites including the Texas Theatre (231 W Jefferson Blvd, 214-948-1546) the art-deco cinema where Oswald was finally apprehended.
