John F Kennedy Hyannis Museum reviews
Small museum does an excellent job recounting JFK’s personal and public life, and illustrating the families connection to Hyannis and Cape Cod. Definitely worth the small entry fee and time spent.

When I was a kid in the early 70s, my parents took us to vacation on the Cape. It was a magical place because of the beach but it also had that magical feeling because of the legacy of the Kennedy family. As an adult, my husband and I thought it was fitting to pay our respects to not only the family but to a much beloved president. Very informative. Loved the timelines and photographs. My favorite part of the museum, the wonderful statue out front! Very recommended!
The museum had information on John, Jacqueline and Bobby Kennedy from the White House years and when they were growing up. They had couple of good things, like a timeline of world events while John was a president and a Kennedy family tree which was useful. I was a little disappointed however, I somehow expected more. How about an outfit from Mrs Kennedy? She was such a fashion icon, that would be really nice. Or how about gloves, hat or pears? The video is really old since it was narrated by Walter Cronkite.
