I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't even realize that Boston was the home to this Presidential Library. Once I learned that I knew I had to go.
The library is T accessible via the red line and there is a shuttle that takes yoi from the T to the library. Admission is $12 (for adult) and completely worth it.
To be honest I didn't know a ton aboit President Kennedy before my visit. The museum starts with a 17 minute video of Kennedy's early life and is very informative. Then you walk through the exhibits which start at the 1960 Democratic National Convention and end with his death. There is a wealth of information and artifacts. Yet, everything is presented in a way that makes you want to know more. Any school age kid would also enjoy this experience (and learn a lot).
I always assumed the Presidential Libraries would be a bit boring, however this was anything but.More
