We stumbled upon this museum by total accident as we were exploring the town. Great opportunity for pics with a statue of JFK. There's free parking if you can find a parallel spot on the street.

My husband and I enjoyed the museum very much. So many great photos and videos to see. We were there for a while getting lost in the history of it all. A good take-in.

I was very young, but remember Kennedy presidency and assassination. The many photographs brought back many memories, and the early Kennedy family photos were very enjoyable also. Wish we had allowed enough time to watch the entire Bobby Kennedy video. If the Kennedy family legacy,...More

They have plenty of parking. Easy to navigate around and you can spend as much time as you need. The photos and memorabilia are great. The only negitive thing is the gift shop is way too small and it gets very crowded.

They are also very easy to talk to when you arrive. I saw them work out a deal for a family that had a disabled veteran and they had a limited budget. It is worth visiting.
