Many of the first visitors to a new museum at the former Texas School Book Depository went directly to the sixth-floor spot where Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly fired the shots that killed President Kennedy.

"It took me back, that view, it really did," said Pat Radmacher of Granbury, one of 1,700 people who visited The Sixth Floor museum, which opened during the Presidents Day holiday Monday in what is now the Dallas County Administration Building.The southeast corner has been made to appear as it did when Oswald ate lunch there Nov. 22, 1963, waiting for Kennedy's motorcade. Visitors may not share Oswald's perch - which has been sealed off with glass - but see a view of Elm Street close to it.

The 9,000-square-foot exhibit organized by the Dallas County Historical Foundation contains 350 photographs, 30 artifacts, a 30-minute audio tour and six films running a total of 40 minutes.
