We hear these words regularly from museum visitors and students participating in our civic education programs.

In an increasingly divided world, the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum provides a space and place to reflect on the past with renewed HOPE for the future.

“I am privileged to have been able to bring my children here to learn what real leadership is about. We need to find a way back to everything he represented.” (Museum Visitor)

Our engaging exhibits celebrate and promote President Kennedy and the Kennedy family’s legacy—one built on courage, leadership and strong values. They INSPIRE people to get involved.

“Thank you for your meaningful lesson about advocating for change in our school and community. We were very inspired by the Kennedy family’s legacy.” (English Language Learner Class from Falmouth High School)

With JFK’s ideals of public service and citizenship as the foundation of our civic education programs, students are learning to think critically, listen thoughtfully and engage in respectful dialogue. They are learning to take ACTION that will make a difference.

So today, on this #GivingTuesday, we ask you to join us to support the important work happening at the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum each day.

We believe in a brighter future – one of strength, hope and unity – messages embraced by President Kennedy and just as meaningful now.

You can help us by making a donation securely online today or mail payment to:
John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum, PO Box 2488, Hyannis, MA 02601.

Thank you for helping us do work that matters!

With Appreciation,

The Board of Directors and Staff of the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum
