Photo gallery: The Sixth Floor Museum opens new cafe and reading room
Bottom line is, you can get cupcakes and visit a local history exhibit all in one go.
DOWNTOWN DALLAS The Sixth Floor Museum just opened two new amenities. The Reading Room is open to the public and houses over 4,000 books, magazines, newspapers, and videos. This entire media collection remembers JFK’s legacy, conspiracy theories, and more. Appointments are required -- but are well worth it -- for a look at the magnificent collection that has been used in research for movies, documentaries, and other books.
While visiting the reading room that overlooks Dealey Plaza, you can also now stop at the new Sixth Floor Museum Store + Café. This new addition is just across the street from the museum at 501 Elm Place. The café is guided by local shop La Duni, and the café sells their famous pastries, coffee, and more.
