IRVING, Texas (AP) — The small, two-bedroom house in the Dallas suburb of Irving has been restored to look as it would have on Nov. 22, 1963. There are baby bottles sitting on the kitchen counter and a rolled-up blanket where Lee Harvey Oswald had stored his rifle in the garage.

The home that once belonged to Ruth Paine, the woman who befriended Oswald's wife and let her live there with her two young daughters, opens Wednesday as a museum.

It will be the first time the public can look inside of the house and comes as the nation marks the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination in downtown Dallas.

The tour of the Ruth Paine House Museum also features projections onto glass panes featuring actors recreating historical scenes.
