This interactive session is a wonderful opportunity for researchers of the Kennedy assassination, Cold War, the 1960s or Dallas' Civil Rights movement to ask questions of the Museum's interpretive staff. Photos, live views of Dealey Plaza, films and other resources are shared as Museum staff answer all questions in this informal question and answer session.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

Dallas, TX
United States

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza interprets the life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy.  Now, through interactive, inquiry-based distance learning programs, you and your students can experience history through careful examination of the photographs, films and artifacts in the Museum's collection of over 60,000 items.  These programs also connect students with "living history" speakers: eyewitnesses, law enforcement officials, journalists, physicians and others with direct memories of the Kennedy assassination.  A selection of engaging programs provide opportunities for students to meet the Museum's curatorial, collections and education staff, prompting thoughtful discussions on U.S. history, world history, the Civil Rights Movement, oral history and the role of the historian!  All programs meet state and national history standards.
