JFK Exhibit Slated for DC Newseum

Posted: Apr. 24th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

John F. Kennedy, one of the United States' most iconic presidents, is getting a new exhibit at the Newseum in Washington D.C., which is likely to become the most popular exhibit in the entire location. The exhibit will allow guests to view media covering the president and his assassination.

Washington D.C.’s Newseum has always been good for interesting news artifacts, but a new display may be a crowning moment for the popular museum. Beginning on Friday, visitors to the Newseum will be able to view rare artifacts and photographs from the Kennedy Presidency and subsequent assassination. The items are going on display as a commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of Kennedy’s death.

Kennedy was gunned down in Dallas, Texas by Lee Harvey Oswald on November 22, 1963. According to the Washington Examiner, items in the big display will include some of Oswald’s personal effects, as well as the 8mm movie camera that Abraham Zapruder used to film the tragedy. A second display will feature photographs from Kennedy’s personal photographer, Jacque Lowe.
