Owner description: Relive the Kennedy era in this dynamic combination museum and library, where your visit starts with a short film and then leaves you on your own to explore a series of fascinating exhibits, including the Kennedy-Nixon debate, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the space program, 1960s campaign paraphernalia and displays about Jacqueline and other Kennedy family members. The striking, I.M. Pei-designed building overlooks the water and the Boston skyline.

This museum is set up very nicely and would be great for all ages. There is a lot of information presented in interesting ways. Also, great views of Boston Harbor.

“JFK museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

I did not expect to like it so much. It's worth the trip-
and you'll never love another politician as much as you will JFK after watching him in action!

“Well Designed, Interesting & Informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

I visited six years ago and enjoyed it even more this time. The use of various media and interesting artifacts make this an excellent way to get to know JFK, the times he served in, and the family that surrounded him.

“Not a place for small children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Many of the exhibits have lots of text posted so if you are really interested, there is quite a bit of reading involved. We had to escape a family with two small children who kept repeating the same things over and over. Overall, very interesting.
