Was disappointed. It's just a small area with some family photos and some trinkets. Would not recommend that you visit.

I enjoyed all of the pictures that were historical. They had programs playing in the various rooms telling about JFK's history

Simple but respectful tribute to JFK. Nice fountain and saying along the concrete. Memorial overseas the beach and a bunch off moored boats. Free short term parking.
