  • This is not the presidential library. But it is a great history of JFK's life and career. I did not see much about his WW 2 experiences. There was also a room dedicated to Robert Kennedy's senatorial and presidential campaigns. Too sad that we could not take pictures because there were a lot of excellent quotes attached to the walls.
  • Interesting and fun. Many pictures of the past. Brings back memories. We did the Legacy Walk to the beach afterword and stopped for lunch. Nice day.
