Anyone who lived through the Kennedy years will appreciate this. Great photography (by WH photographer) and history of the Kennedy family and the connection to Hyannis. A part of the Kennedy Trail through Hyannis. Thoroughly appreciated all of it.

This museum tells the background to the Kennedy family through photos, some familiar, many personal and private, that help shed a different light of this family as,well, a family. Small but worthwhile. And hour to 90 minutes is sufficient. A great way to spend an...More

As overseas visitors we weren’t aware of the extent of the Kennedy clan on US politics, so the exhibits were of great interest. Allow at least one hour to read all of the information and view the photo exhibition to get full value.

They are also very easy to talk to when you arrive. I saw them work out a deal for a family that had a disabled veteran and they had a limited budget. It is worth visiting.
