On November 22, 1963, the Texas School Book Depository building was the focus of the world's shock, grief, and outrage when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dealey Plaza. John F. Kennedy and the Memory of a Nation occupies the sixth floor where significant evidence of a sniper was found. This exhibition recreates the social and political context of the early 1960s, chronicles the assassination and its aftermath, and recognizes Kennedy's lasting impact on American culture.  Temporary exhibits can be seen on the seventh floor.
