Dallas has created a famous museum located in the previous book depository which uses footage, audio clips and eyewitness accounts to offer the exact scene of how JFK was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald. The displays have their fair share of conspiracy theories too. The museum offers a cell phone walking tour of assassination site and the JFK memorial.
This museum has been created at Southern Methodist University in 2013 at over USD 300 million. It documents the life and times of President George W Bush and it has the same goals as the other presidential libraries- to create research facilities and present the president’s record to public viewers. It has the amazing Decision Point Theater where you get an insight into how presidential decisions were made.
