Enjoyed the library and memorabilia very much. I was in grammar school in California when President Kennedy was assassinated and I have always felt a personal connection to this time in history. We decided to visit the library on our cruise stop in Boston during September 09. Our visit followed the funeral services of Senator Ted Kennedy by a few weeks; we had watched news programs on the background of the Kennedy clan so this made us even more excited to be able to visit the library. Seeing the hull from the coconut that President Kennedy had carved a message upon hoping to be rescued with his crew from PT 109 was very inspiring. Highly recommend a visit to the library.

This is a wonderful museum. If you love history you should definetely see this museum. It is so wonderfully put together. It is a nice way to spend a couple of hours. This museum is good for people of all ages. You can learn so much regarding the Kennedys and their legacy. It is unbelieveable how much you can learn.

This is an incredible Presidential Library. I have been to quite a few, and this is certainly one of the best. There is something special about the library that you feel the moment you walk into the fabulous building set overlooking the water. Here you have one of Massachusetts' favorite son's revealed in a marvelous way. You have the chance to learn about JFK as well as his family and upbringing. There are some fabulous personal items of both the President and the first Lady on display. What a great resource not only for learning about one of our presidents, but for getting a deeper glimpse into one of the beloved and mysterious leaders of the times.

JFK is one of the most well-known names of all American presidents, so it's undoubted that there'd be a museum fully devoted to him. Being the national museum for JFK, it is a bit biased and fully worships him as the family man and perfect leader for our country, and completely turns a blind eye to the rumored scandals, which might have been cool to explore. The films chronicle his life pre-presidency, then his acts as president, such as the right to a physical education and the formation of the Peace Corps. These are little-known facts I liked to discover and admired JFK for doing.

This is a great museum for history buffs and anyone interested in what many consider America's "Royal Family." The museum overlooks the water and looks like it was built on a ship. Also great gift shop with JFK's books. Special events occur weekly and are open free to the public.

PROS:
CONS: hard to find
