Home where Oswald stayed night before Kennedy assassination opens as Ruth Paine House Museum

Lee Harvey Oswald spent his last night before allegedly assassinating President John F. Kennedy with wife, Marina, and friend, Ruth Paine, at Paine’s home. The home, restored to the look of that night, Nov. 21, 1963, opens Nov. 6, 2013 as the Ruth Paine House Museum. Events that unfolded at the home are taken from historical record and relived by actors through video projection.
