Washington D.C.’s Newseum has always been good for interesting news artifacts, but a new display may be a crowning moment for the popular museum. Beginning on Friday, visitors to the Newseum will be able to view rare artifacts and photographs from the Kennedy Presidency and subsequent assassination. The items are going on display as a commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of Kennedy’s death.

Kennedy was gunned down in Dallas, Texas by Lee Harvey Oswald on November 22, 1963. According to the Washington Examiner, items in the big display will include some of Oswald’s personal effects, as well as the 8mm movie camera that Abraham Zapruder used to film the tragedy. A second display will feature photographs from Kennedy’s personal photographer, Jacque Lowe. While the negatives were lost in the 9/11 attacks, the Newseum managed to put together an exhibit from known prints.

While the artifacts are a compelling way to remember the tragic event, they are by no means, the only planned event for the 50th Anniversary. If you can’t make it all the Washington, D.C. to visit the Newseum, you can check out TLC’s documentary, Letters to Jackie or the Killing Kennedy documentary headed to the National Geographic channel.

There’s probably no fitting tribute to commemorate the Kennedy Assassination. Those who were alive to witness the event have it burned in their memories, and those who don’t will never quite understand the shock and sadness. That being said, Kennedy’s memory still deserves to be honored, and this Newseum exhibit sounds like a step in the right direction.
