Museum Welcomes Cotton Bowl Fans with Discount

DALLAS/December 14, 2009—Tickets to this year's AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic provide admission to more than a great football game between the University of Mississippi Rebels and Oklahoma State University Cowboys—they offer the opportunity for a memorable history experience. Fans attending the game receive a $2 discount on admission to The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza when they show their game ticket between December 26, 2009, and January 4, 2010. Chronicling the death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy, the museum is located at 411 Elm Street in downtown Dallas, less than 20 miles from Cowboys Stadium. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday (closed Christmas).

With exhibits on the sixth and seventh floors of the former Texas School Book Depository, the museum features hundreds of photographs, documentary films, historic footage and artifacts such as the Dealey Plaza model made by the FBI for the Warren Commission. A comprehensive audio guide of the sixth floor exhibit, included in admission, is available in seven languages and is highlighted by excerpts of historic radio broadcasts and the voices of reporters, police officers and witnesses to the assassination.  Visitors may also use their cell phones for an outdoor walking tour of Dealey Plaza and other nearby sites; the tour may be purchased with, or separately from, museum admission.

Regular price admission is $13.50 for adults, $12.50 for youth (6-18 years) and seniors (65+), and free (or $3.50 with audio guide) for children five years and younger; discounts are available to groups of 20 or more. The cell phone tour costs $2.50 with museum admission or $5 separately. Museum tours are self-guided.
