We went during winter school vacation and the museum was very quiet so we could take our time listening to videos and looking at pictures during JFK's life. The kids got a history lesson and we all enjoyed the old photos. Definitely worth a repeat...More

A simple, understated memorial to one of the best loved US presidents. It is situated on Veteran's Beach just outside the town on the way towards the Kennedy compound where he spent his summers while growing up. It's not as ornate as other JFK memorials,...More

Lots of info packed into a small space. The director told us that they'll be opening a special exhibit on September 17, 2016, on Rose Kennedy.

During off season it is not as spectacular as in the summer. The flowers surrounding the grounds are just beautiful. Overlooks Hyannis harbor. Very relaxing to ponder and reflect.

So glad I stumbled upon this little treasure. Nice and dignified memorial for a larger than life man with an incredible legacy.

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.

It would be approximately a 25 minute drive from Brewster to Hyannis. This time of year would be an easy drive, not much tourist traffic as yet.
