A great memorial to JFK. I remember his White House years and his assassination. His family brought class to the White House and pride to our country

Driving around and found this simple yet tasteful memorial. Right on the sea and fitting for JFK. Large parking lot. A must see memorial. Right next to Korea War Memorial. Very peaceful.

We have been here before and it's never a disappointment. The views are beautiful and the walkways are very nice. We had our wedding ceremony here in June. The pics were gorgeous with the boats in the background. It's easy to get a permit and the parking is ample.

Priced a little high for what you see when you go in but was still worth it. I don't think this is for children under 12 years of age as they will be bored. The baseball museum is less interesting if you are not a baseball fan, especially a local fan. Again though, still enjoyable and most people aren't going... More

Easy to access, with free parking, this memorial to JFK is located in a beautiful park with a grand view of the beach. You can take a stroll along the beach and pick up some shells. Immediately adjacent to this memorial (very short walk) is the Korean War Memorial and worth a visit. Nearby, one of the locals sells hats... More

Well maintained and simple memorial to JFK. Bit of a walk from Hyannis on a hot day. Not much info, go to the museum if you want to learn more. Great views of a lovely bay.

I must be honest, I'm not one for museaums / memorials and for a Brit, I guess it doesn't have the same significance. However, the memorial was very peaceful and well maintained. It was a easy walk from the centre of Hyannis

A very positive tribute to our youngest president. It is very easy to access by driving, plenty of parking available, including handicapped spots. Wide sidewalks, incredible views of the harbor he loved.
