  • It was great to make history connections with my children. We arrived early and were able to cross the street and read the plaques to get a sense of what happened.The museum was not open. It would definitely help to watch a few documentaries and read a few books before coming without a museum tour.
  • A lot of history on this Grassy Knoll. We enjoyed reading the signs and wondering how our nation accepted that Kennedy was shot with a boomerang bullet. Given the location of his car and location of the accused shooter the bullet could not have struck him from the front.
