Take the time to stop by here! We walked from our hotel, not a bad walk. What a great remembrance of a great president. I would consider this a must see!

Worth the visit! Even my husband liked it. I felt it was a bit expensive but be sure if you have college students with you to mention that for a discount. Loved the special exhibit on Jack and Bobby.

A must to visit while visiting Hyannis. Always peaceful no matter rain or shine. Watch the ferries coming and going to the islands. Find a shell to remind you of your visit to Cape Cod.

it warmed my heart and soul to visit the John F. Kennedy Memorial. I must admit, I felt such a pride of spending time at a memorial of a president that was loved by many.

Pretty memorial in front of the sea. Little museum beside ran by a lovely gentleman who I would swear is a descendant from the Kennedy's - you need to double take as you would think it it's Teddy. Also, there are public clean restrooms nearby - very useful if you are on a bus tour!

This memorial is well-kept in grounds that overlook the ocean. I enjoyed this visit very much. Kid-friendly - there's a great playground next to the memorial.

Just South of the Hyannis harbor, this simple but elegant memorial to John F. Kennedy, President of the US but as importantly a son of Cape Cod, overlooks the constant flow of boats in and out of Hyannis. A brass portrait of him is set in a curved wall facing a beautiful fountain surrounded by a lush lawn. A few... More

A great, cute little place to take in some history. A nice stop while in downtown Hyannis, on a hot day or any day. My husband and I were walking around in Hyannis and made this stop after a couple of years of talking about coming here. We are glad we made this stop to learn about the Kennedy's. Beautiful...

We stopped here after a walk around the Hyannis Harbor and dinner at the waterfront. It was a quiet evening and we found the memorial to be very moving.
