“Visitors recognize the historic connection of what happened here.”

A two-year volunteer stint at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza turned into 18 years and counting for museum board chairman Victor Elmore. Along the way, Dallas’ historic tourist destination has evolved from “exhibit” status to a fully accredited museum. “The Museum is preparing for its next chapter. We want continue to grow our impact on students, families and visitors in Dallas,” Elmore says. Next up: Expanding physical space, integrating history for schools and contemporizing the facility, increasing its contemporary relevance. “We plan to update its posture, making preservation space and archives available for scholars,” he says. “Visitors recognize the historic connection of what happened here.”
