It was really a detailed tour and very impressive. Would have liked to have seen more but what was offered was of high quality.

With a tour group. Just viewed the wall and Korean memorial. Beautiful water view. Quiet time to reflect and be thankful. Well worth the visit if you're in that area.

The memoral was really lovely - a truly peaceful and tasteful tribute to JFK. We took a leisurely walk around the fountain and the grounds - beautiful flowers and gorgeous views to enjoy along the way!

Saw both the museum and the monument, the museum was both amazing and sad, a fantastic collection of one of the most famous presidents early days and sad to see it cut short so quickly. Must see for all.

A great spot for a stroll, and some deep thoughts... Not much around it, but worth 30 minutes of your time. Near the Hyannis Yacht club.. a nice stroll on the beach is well worth it.

Saw the museum and saw the memorial. Did the JFK walk as well. Very historical. The Kennedy Museum in Boston, MA is a place not to miss.

The memorial, grounds and settings were nicely displayed, right on the harbor. This is basically a walk-in / walk-out attraction. Plenty of parking.

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
