Dedicated to the brief life of JFK's leadership and legacy, I try to make the effort to visit this place when in Boston. This museum overlooks the Boston skyline as well as an outdoor walkway along Dorchester Bay.

We had free time on a business trip to Boston and decided to go to the JFK museum. It was very interesting. I learned a lot about JFK. I especially liked the section on the Cuban missile crisis. I recommend this museum.

The best place to learn about the Kennedy presidency. Although felt they could have had more on his assaniation. The JFK museum was really great. Certainly one to keep up your sleeve incase of wet weather.

I’m so glad I was able to make it to this museum on a rainy day. I loved the set up from start to finish in chronological order. It made sense. I loved that they had clothing on display and I thought it was so cool that they had his boat docked right there for everyone to see through the window. I learned a lot about John F. Kennedy that I probably wouldn’t have known before.

A great place to visit for views and lunch. Basically a Kennedy advertisement with nothing related to assassination or affairs. Camelot with rose-colored glasses; pun intended.
