Can I take pictures?
The 6th Floor Museum limits photography to protect the copyright privileges of the creators and lenders of artifacts and images on display. Guests are only allowed to take photographs in the Visitors Center, from the seventh floor window and outside the facility.
How long does it take to go through the museum?
The core exhibit on the sixth floor - John F. Kennedy and the Memory of a Nation - is a self-guided experience, led by an audio presentation included with admission. It usually takes about 90 minutes to go through the entire exhibit if you choose to listen to everything. The seventh floor occasionally plays host to temporary exhibits, which can add time to your visit if you choose to view them.
