For the first time, the museum is showing items from assassin Lee Harvey Oswald at the time of his arrest. The display includes Oswald’s clothing, a jacket that police believe he discarded, his wallet and a blanket used to hide his rifle in Mrs. Paine’s garage. The objects are on loan from the National Archives.

The photography exhibition features 70 images that were nearly lost in the 9-11 attacks. Kennedy photographer Jacques Lowe kept the negatives of more than 40,000 Kennedy photographs in a bank vault at the World Trade Center.

Lowe’s photo, restored, shows JFK shaking hands with brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy.
