JFK Walking Tour with Oswald Rooming House opt Sixth Floor Museum or CityPass

During our journey, your tour guide will revisit the events leading up to November 22nd, 1963 and beyond to provide perspective and new insight into this tragic, very human drama. Most people are familiar with the JFK Museum (the site from which Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly fired the deadly shots), but we will also show you the many other places around Dallas associated with the assassination that are just as important.

This walking tour includes exclusive access to Oswald's Rooming House. Our last stop is at the Texas Theater where the “alleged murderer” was captured.

You have the option to buy admission tickets to the 6th Floor Museum or purchase a CityPass (Sixth Floor Museum, Reunion Tower GeO-Deck, Perot Museum AND the Dallas Zoo OR the George W. Bush Library). All attractions visits are self-guided, you need transportation to reach some of the attractions. Your tour guide will provide your tickets at the end of the tour and help you with directions and instructions.

Johnson called it "a place of quiet refuge, an enclosed place of thought and contemplation separated from the city around, but near the sky and earth." Dallas raised $200,000 for the memorial by August 1964, entirely from 50,000 individual donations contributed by private citizens.
