Sadly the museum was closed for the winter and I could not visit. The bronze life sized statute of President JFK in the front is stunning and well worth taking photos of...I did!

I have been here twice. This place is beautiful. They do a great job maintaining the grounds. I spoke with a person that actually came here every Independence Day for the day at the beach and an incredible view of the fireworks display.

This is a simple monument which includes a fountain and two relief sculptures mounted to a stone wall. It faces the the body of water that President Kennedy sailed throughout his life and stands in a park adjacent to the Hyannis Yacht Club where JFK stored his racing craft. I think that this is a respectful, thoughtful tribute and might... More

I have been to the memorial many, many times. It is a moving experience , but for the very best time , go when the sun is glistening on the waters of Lewis Bay. Sit awhile, listen to the fountain, read the inscription carved around the water basin . Maybe you will see the kids having a sailing lesson or... More

Very picturesque location on a hill overlooking a beach. Flowers and plantings were attractive, but it is a memorial, so there isn't a whole lot to see other than a bas relief bronze plaque of Kennedy.
