JFK’s assassination is one of the most significant historical moments, but there is more to uncover! Find out on a ghost tour of the Sixth Floor Museum.
The assassination of John F. Kennedy is one of the most infamous killings in history. It was sudden, brutal, and left a significant mark upon all who witnessed it. It also bred a legacy that influences Presidential security to this very day.
Such a significant event deserves proper attention, and that’s what you’ll find on a historical haunted tour of the Sixth Floor Museum.
The Sixth Floor Museum is a one-of-a-kind experience, expertly documenting the assassination of the 35th President from start to finish.
Most startling of all, the museum is situated precisely where Lee Harvey Oswald fired that fatal shot. You can stand exactly where he once stood and see through his eyes out toward the road where Kennedy’s motorcade drove.
When the assassination occurred, Texas police worked frantically to detain the culprit. They arrested Oswald just over an hour after he fired the first shot. Unfortunately, by then, it was already too late. Kennedy succumbed to his fatal wounds after only thirty minutes, despite the swift efforts of hospital staff.
That fatal shot changed the course of US history forever. It was one of the most public assassinations in history. Due to the highly public nature of the assassination, photographs and even video footage are widely available.
The stark contrast between the smiling faces of the Kennedys and what would follow just moments after is haunting. You can see footage of the events of that day yourself at the Sixth Floor Museum.
The information provided by the Sixth Floor Museum is in-depth, but it’s only half the story. So much of Kennedy’s assassination remains shrouded in mystery, despite being an enormously public event. Conspiracy theories abound, with the United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations even supporting the argument that a second gunman was present and fired upon Kennedy.
This air of mystery is present throughout the museum. The notion that there is something more undiscovered lingers, even despite the swathes of information presented to us. Standing where Oswald once stood and observing his vantage point, where he would have witnessed Kennedy’s motorcade approaching, is a chilling experience. You can’t help but wonder what was running through his mind and who may have assisted him.
Conspiracies aside, visiting the museum is an experience. Our ghost tours provide a unique angle to the story that everyone has heard of but may never have fully reckoned with until seeing the details up close.
Learn for yourself about the assassination of JFK and stand where the assassin once stood. It’s an opportunity to play history detective that you won’t want to miss.
