This tribute to JFK is mostly photos and videos, with audio commentaries to supplement every exhibit, but the pictorial history is excellent -- and objective (no efforts made to gloss over the Kennedy wealth). While there, also check out the downstairs Cape Cod Baseball League museum and its countless memorabilia, ranging from old uniforms and broken bats to the myriad... More

The JFK Memorial is a wonderful collection of photographs about the Kennedy Family. There are pictures of Jacqueline Kennedy and John Kennedy Jr. that moved me to tears.

Te scenery is absolutely beautiful in this Park. The sailboats are so pretty out in the water,Roses are gorgeous and the fountain and memorial wall are a great tribute to President Kennedy. It is a lovely place to pack a picnic lunch or better yet, Go by SPANKYS and get take-out and eat at the picnic tables there

A museum filled with pictures and some very interesting interviews. Enjoyed seeing the actual fabrics of the homes as associated with the furnishings.

A man whose time was cut too short. A nice memorial. A little small but a good place for reflection of this popular president.

We were driving along singing a song on a sunny morning and found this park. It is very obscure and understated and laid back. So happy we found this place. Clean beach. Neat orderly without in your face. The fountain was pristine as well as the grounds. My favorite part was..walking on the beach with my husband and feeling like... More

It was creepy for me, having had the pleasure of working with the late Senator and watching him speak about his beloved family. Sad to see the smiling faces of a family surrounded by so much tragedy. Yet inspiring. History. New England History. New England Spirit.

Was expecting a larger exhibit but the photos of the Kennedys left one with a heavy heart and a warm smile
