John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum is a multimedia exhibit designed to open a window on the days JFK spent on Cape Cod; days relaxing with family, days playing football with PT109 buddies, days spent sailing on the ocean to which he was so constantly drawn.
The exhibit features over 80 photographs spanning the years 1934 to 1963 and is arranged in thematic groupings to reflect John F. Kennedy, his family, his friends and the Cape Cod he so dearly loved. In addition to photography, a video narrated by Walter Cronkite depicts the president’s experiences on the Cape. Several themed areas include charged oral histories of JFK’s friends.
The Hyannis Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to have created this opportunity for visitors and residents alike to remember the John F. Kennedy era on Cape Cod. We all share his love of the environment – Cape Cod – our special place on earth.
Kennedy was a man of vigor, vision, hope and faith in America. He inspired a generation. He was our 35th President and our neighbor. We hope you enjoy this glimpse at the life of John Kennedy on Cape Cod.
“To provide support for the JFK Hyannis Museum to enhance the visitor experience, to celebrate the legacy of President Kennedy and family, to share his special ties to Cape Cod and to educate the community, especially our students.”
