John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

Columbia Point, Boston, MA 02125

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum sits on a 10-acre waterfront park overlooking Boston and the Harbor Islands. It is one of 13 Presidential Libraries in the United States but the only one in New England. The Museum walks you through President Kennedy’s thousand days in office and brings to light the hope, dreams, accomplishments and memories of a President who remains highly popular today. At Presidential Libraries, history lives beyond the pages of a textbook or the walls of a classroom. The past becomes the present for all generations to experience.
Through permanent galleries and a temporary exhibit space, visitors will be immersed in the 60's and inspired by JFK's words.
