JFK Memorial

We took a nice walk to the memorial from our hotel. It was worth the long walk. Several other people were walking too. There is a parking if you choose to drive.

It's peaceful and beautiful setting. Well worth seeking out. We took pictures there and it is on the harbor. You can walk from there to the beach and have a stroll along the water. Very nice and I learned a lot by reading the memorial plaques.

This was a nice memorial. Clean and not gaudy. Nice scenery. We took our time walking around looking at the other memorials there.

It brought back so many great memories. It wasn't a large museum but just right. I saw family pictures and loved that.

How nice to see how the first family of Cape Cod spent their days in Hyannis. It brought back many memories. Bonus was the Cape Cod Baseball Hall of Fame downstairs.

This is a sweet little museum...well organized and nicely presented...a good way to while away an hour or so. The videos are well done. It gives you a view of the 1960's Kennedy Hyannis lifestyle.

A moving and evocative museum. The displays contained many photos of JFK and family which don't appear to have been widely distributed.

If you want some inside scoop on the Kennedys, here is a place to get some. Bit not too much. This is a collection of photos and videos which constitute a shrine to JFK. Standard stuff...touch football on the lawn, kids on ponies. It can be a little grating when casual reference is made to the three boats and the... More

Simple and tastefully done, this memorial looks out over the Hyannis harbor. The landscaping is well maintained. Nice place for pictures.
