Museum statement on CoronaVirus – March 15, 2020

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza will close on Sunday, March 15 at 6:00 p.m. until further notice.

In light of current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have made the difficult decision to close the Museum to the public after 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 15. The health and safety of our guests is always the top priority for the Museum and, as such, we know this is the right decision. Given the evolving nature of the outbreak, we will carefully reassess this decision in the coming weeks and share updates on our website and social media channels as they become available.

While we are closed, we encourage you to visit our YouTube channel, where many of the Museum’s programs are available to view. As this pandemic impacts every aspect of our lives, it is vital that we remember the importance of preserving history. The Sixth Floor Museum is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to chronicling the assassination and legacy of President John F. Kennedy and presenting contemporary culture within the context of presidential history. You can help to us continue to engage, connect and inspire audiences—especially while the Museum closed—by making a gift here.

We are working with visitors to reschedule visits; note that all tickets are good for 90 days from the date of the scheduled visit. Please contact jfk@jfk.org for assistance in rescheduling your visit or for help with a refund.

Please continue to take precautions to stay healthy and safe. For the latest updates regarding coronavirus, we encourage you to visit the CDC website.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Museum.
