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.

We like little muesums when we travel, just the right size and time, for the schedule. This one, so cool, so sad...

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.

We came upon this while looking for teh Kennedy Compound. It's just so picturesque and as part of the Kennedy Legacy Trail, you realize how much the Kennedys mean to this area and how much the area meant to them.

Pretty location, fine scenery. Take your photos and move on...There wasn't much to see. A wall with a plaque and some rose bushes with the Hyannis Sound in the background.

We stopped at the JFK Memorial on our way back from Nantucket. What a fitting memorial to our 35th President! A beautifully landscaped park on Nantucket Sound surrounds the stone wall memorial to John F. Kennedy. I highly recommend taking a few minutes to stop at the memorial.

The proximity of this memorial to the veteran's memorial in such a beautiful place is both poignant and thought provoking. If like us, you have visited the JFK museum in town and the nearby Kennedy compound, this is and must see!
