The history of the Kennedy Presidency and a collection of family items and photographs highlight this facility, honoring one of Cape Cod's most famous families.

Nice little museum that chronicles the history of JFK and the Kennedy family. Mostly photos, accompanied by a brief story. Well worth a visit on a rainy day, or anytime you want to better understand the family that shaped Cape Cod and American Politics

Museums are not usually what comes to my mind in the summer. I want to be outside and on the water but this place is an exception. Beautifully done, very interesting and in an intimate setting. To see everything is not overwhelming and young children can usually handle it because it doesn't take all day.

Day trip to Hyannis to visit the JFK Museum.
Full of photos amd memorabilia of the Kennedy family during their Cape vacations.
Be sure to visit the Cape Cod Summer Baseball League museum on the lower level.

Great place to learn about our country's history and local history. Located right on Main Street, so you can continue shopping, eating or drinking near by!

This is JFK's hometown museum. And while it was small, it had quite a bit of interesting Kennedy memorabilia. It's worth a look, and should take less than a hour.

This is a quick take along with the Cape Cod Baseball Museum downstairs.

Not terribly expensive. If you are from New England, the JFK is not much to see (unlike the museum near UMASS in Boston).

But it helps to kill a rainy day!!!
