A good museum. It had information from his early years, to his military career to his presidency. He was a true family man and the exhibit reflected this.

This was such a emotional, touching museum. I listened to parts of his inaugural address and cried, wishing that he was president today. I was so moved by the whole experience. I was in the 7th grade when he died but still remember exactly where...More

We stopped to see this veterans park while we were in the area. The JFK memorial is well done and overlooks the ocean. The Korean's Memorial is outstanding too.

Our first visit to Cape Cod was a big hit. We loved visiting the JFK Memorial and all of its rich history. This is a must see and do.

Nice walk from downtown, or a easy drive with parking. Set right on the Lewis Bay, it's beside a town beach with a play are for kids. If you're in Hyannis go for visit.

This memorial was a short walk outside Hyannis. It was a great memorial to the former president. Also on site was a Korean memorial.

It was nice here to see all the water and boats and the beautiful fountain that is there. The grounds are well kept, it was more than what I was expecting. It was a nice Memorial to see!

There was not much that I did not already know about JFK but it is always good to refresh one's memory. It is a small museum but well worth a visit to be reminded of our 35th President.

It would be approximately a 25 minute drive from Brewster to Hyannis. This time of year would be an easy drive, not much tourist traffic as yet.

Nature often gives us beauty and also things we are not so fond of. Goose poop. The museum is open to suggestions as most things they have tried have not worked in solving the goose poop issue. What is your suggestion to... More
