    Five Stars. Insight into JFK’s relationship with the family summer house at Hyannis in Cape Cod. Three rooms paying tribute to Robert Kennedy and Jacqueline as well as JFK. Well presented with video and old newspaper accounts of the presidential contest, summer holidays as president and even meetings of his government in the compound. Very enjoyable. . .” Google reviewer from Australia, visited November 2023


    Five Stars. Neat museum that does a great job of talking about the Kennedy family and life on the Cape. Talks a lot about JFK and his younger years and enjoyment of life in Hyannis. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Ample parking right behind the building with public restrooms near parking as well.” Google reviewer, visited November 2023


    Five Stars. A gem of a museum- time well spent . . . I loved walking through this museum and reliving the Kennedy era. Importantly, the museum is not just geared to those of us who were alive in the 60’s. The exhibits are thoughtful and thought provoking. . .the museum is conveniently located on Main Street and a visit can easily fit into a day out in Hyannis.” Tripadvisor traveler, visited September 2023

Worthwhile.” Tripadvisor traveler, visited August 2023


    Three Stars. Lots of photos on the walls with descriptions for you to read. It does cover the whole Kennedy clan from Joe and Rose all the way down. Interesting for younger people and people not familiar with the family. It was worth the price of admission.” Tripadvisor traveler, visited July 2023

    Four Stars. When I was a kid in the early 70s, my parents took us to vacation on the Cape. It was a magical place because of the beach but it also had that magical feeling because of the legacy of the Kennedy family. As an adult, my husband and I thought it was fitting to pay our respects to not only the family but to a much beloved president. Very informative. Loved the timelines and photographs. My favorite part of the museum, the wonderful statue out front! Very recommended!” Google reviewer, visited 2022


    Five Stars. Our visit to the John F. Kennedy Museum was a highlight of our stay in Hyannis and was within walking distance of our hotel. The museum had very many pictures and mementos of our beloved past President and the Kennedy family. Visiting the museum made me feel a part of the history and legacy of our nation. This is my second visit to the museum, and I loved every minute of both visits.” Google reviewer, visited 2021
