“Nothing Really New.”
Reviewed 29 October 2011

This is a small museum with a collection of pictures that the average JFK fan has seen before. However it's still worth a stop. Here's a tip: you can park in the back all day for free and walk around Hyannis.

“Don't get excited”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

I thought this would be really impressive considering how much he is admired in the area. However it is extremely simple. A wall with a Bronze image of JFK and a fountain which can only be desribed as in a circular paddling pool that is fenced off. Just not what I imagined. Liked the Korean memorial next to it.

Small museum located in a municipal building. Interesting information and photos about JFK's time on the Cape. Interesting Kennedy Family Tree!

“Lovely location!”
Reviewed 9 September 2011

This memorial is located near the beach. There were geese everywhere and beautiful flowers in bloom. Really enjoyed the beautiful views. I have never had photos with beach scenes quite like this.
