  • Super busy and small. Important place to go in these times. Decent walk through history of Kennedy family. Parking is a mess. Worth the hustle once or twice. Area eateries for family or couples.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of the JFK Museum in Hyannis MA. He was President during my preteen years and the museum brought back memories of the greatest President in my lifetime. He accomplished amazing thing in his short time in office. The pictures of JFK and his family are beautiful.
  • JFK’s history organized in each room by the years leading up to his assassination, beginning with the marriage of his parents—Rose Fitzgerald & Joseph P. Kennedy. Great pictures of his life in Hyannis. Includes a intro video. Restrooms are located in a separate building.
  • Well worth the trip to see the 10th Anniversary of JFK'S BIRTH.
  • Make you realize what a great humanitarian he was. Great place for kids and adults. The good ole days of U.S. government.
