This magnet, measuring 1 by 5 inches, is based on a one-of-a-kind artifact in the Museum’s Collection—the enameled metal sign that hung above the main entrance to the Texas School Book Depository building in 1963.

The sign, which remained over the entrance until 1970, was captured in numerous photographs and films in the years following the assassination of President Kennedy. After being cleaned and stabilized by a professional conservator, the sign was displayed on the Museum’s seventh floor from 2012 to 2014.
