Enjoyed the memorial and the beautiful grounds. Lots of goose poop though so we had to watch where we stepped. The harbor view from the memorial was like a postcard.

Bascially all they show is pictures, alongside a timeline of his visits to Hyannis during his presidence and a few videos of "back in the days" and interviews with his brother Sen. Kennedy. For 9$ i did expect a little more. Really, theres better things to do. (I didnt go see the Baseball-museum in the basement which is also included... More

Nice little memorial with a great view of Hyannis harbor. JFK would like it. Easy to get in and out of parking lot.

Though not a huge facility, the memorial was fascinating with many pictures and descriptions as well as a film room

Very simple memorial. Beautiful view of the harbor. Liked the quote around the fountain. Two older gentlemen were selling ball caps nearby. Peaceful.

A very memorable place for the Kennedy's especially the man's statue walking barefooted, reminds me of anyone's immortal life with simple and plain attitude towards anything. A good start when you visit Cape cod.

I liked coming upon the memorial and being able to pay our respects to a president cut down in such a way. It is in a nice part of the harbour area and you don't have to pay car parking fees to pay your respects. Car parking fees are an issue in Hyannis.

This place is really 4 small rooms with photos of Kennedy's life. It was fun because there is nothing else to do in this town anyway. I was there with 4 kids and her mother, and we had a fun time just by looking at the pictures and remembering his life. For free you can go to the second floor,... More

Good value for $6 bucks...nice historical look back. It's combined with the Cape Cod Baseball Hall of Fame...another very nice experience.
