It is now a museum called the Sixth Floor Museum. It covered JFK presidential campaign and his life as president and his assassination by Lee Harvey Oswald and the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby. The seventh floor was all about the press’s coverage of events.

We then took a walk out onto the Grassy Knowle (Where the fourth shot was supposed to have been fired from).

We then drove up to Highland Park area, Jill and I bought a few books since I have finished Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince and The Davinci Code by Dan Brown (Both amazing books well worth reading) The highlands Park village is a very posh area with all designer shops. We then went back to the hotel for a couple of hours before crossing the road and going to Bennigans for Dinner.
