WASHINGTON — To mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Newseum will feature two new exhibits and an original documentary film chronicling the presidency, family life and death of America's 35th president.
"JFK" includes "Creating Camelot," "Three Shots Were Fired" and the documentary, "A Thousand Days," and will open April 12, 2013.
Also featured: "JFK Online: From the Newseum Archives," an interactive Web-based exhibit that draws from the Newseum's collection of video interviews with journalists who covered Kennedy. A visually stunning timeline presents key moments in Kennedy's life, with rare photographs and personal recollections from the leading journalists of the day.
Public programs and special events about the Kennedys will take place throughout 2013 at the Newseum.Related Links:
