Mourning a President

November 17, 2017 - February 19, 2018

The Sixth Floor Museum will open a special temporary exhibit; Mourning a President on Friday, Nov. 17.  The exhibit will present a compelling chronology of the funeral of President John F. Kennedy and his burial in Arlington National Cemetery on Nov. 25, 1963.   The exhibit will feature many significant historical objects from the Museum’s collections including hand-written notes from Mrs. Kennedy addressing the intricate planning for the funeral, a funeral program from St. Matthew’s Cathedral, Mass cards, eulogies and special editions of newspapers and magazines.  As a featured highlight, the Museum will display for the first time fully unfurled, the 15-foot-long flag that flew at half-staff above the Senate Wing of the U.S. Capitol. Never-before-seen home movies will provide an intimate and emotionally powerful retrospective of the president’s funeral.
