More than 100 artifacts on display include presumed assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s wallet contents, the clothing he wore that day, the blanket he used to hide his rifle, and more. The film “A Thousand Days” documents newsworthy moments of the Kennedy presidency. Through Jan. 5, 2014, tickets $12.95- $21.95.
