The JFK Memorial is part of the Veterans' Memorial Park in Hyannis. It's not a huge memorial, but it's nice. The gardens that surround the large plaza are very nice too. Be sure to go during the day when the fountain is on. It is turned off around 5:00pm.

Liked the history, photograph's, narrations on TV. It was great to see candid photo's as well as history that happened. The Kennedy's had so much tragedy but it was nice to share in their happy memories too.

This tribute to JFK is mostly photos and videos, with audio commentaries to supplement every exhibit, but the pictorial history is excellent -- and objective (no efforts made to gloss over the Kennedy wealth). While there, also check out the downstairs Cape Cod Baseball League museum and its countless memorabilia, ranging from old uniforms and broken bats to the myriad... More

The JFK Memorial is a wonderful collection of photographs about the Kennedy Family. There are pictures of Jacqueline Kennedy and John Kennedy Jr. that moved me to tears.

Te scenery is absolutely beautiful in this Park. The sailboats are so pretty out in the water,Roses are gorgeous and the fountain and memorial wall are a great tribute to President Kennedy. It is a lovely place to pack a picnic lunch or better yet, Go by SPANKYS and get take-out and eat at the picnic tables there

A man whose time was cut too short. A nice memorial. A little small but a good place for reflection of this popular president.
