This is really an excellent museum detailing the life of President Kennedy. Much can be learned here and it’s quite touching. It should be seen by all.

Great photo and historical fact museum. Given its size, it exceeded my expectations. Some very moving exhibits. Well worth price of admission.

As someone who deeply respects President JFK and his brother Robert, I knew that I wanted to visit this museum while in Cape Cod. The museum is set up as a time line of President JFK's life. The photographs and videos allow viewers to see him both professionally and personally. There is also a beautiful room that honors the memory of JKF Jr. I especially enjoyed the photos taken of President Kennedy with his wife Jackie and their children Caroline and John. Make sure you head over to the JFK Memorial while you are in Hyannis. It too, is a beautiful tribute to our much beloved President.

This was an excellent hour and a half. There are some really beautiful and telling pictures displayed here and the information is set out well. It tells the Kennedy story well and with grace. The shop was also lovely and we spent quite a bit of money in there on books and socks etc. We had a three year old with us who behaved really well, but it is not really suitable for small children as it is all writing and images. Excellent for older children and adults however. I would recommend this place to anyone interested in the Kennedys or history.
