Long controversial, but endlessly fascinating to millions of visitors, the Zapruder film can be viewed there, which captures the infamous event in 26 seconds of amateur footage. The film became the most expensive American historical artifact after the US government paid $16 million to the cameraman's family in 1999.</p>
