Relive the Kennedy era in this dynamic combination museum and library, where your visit starts with a short film and then leaves you on your own to explore a series of fascinating exhibits, including the Kennedy-Nixon debate, the Cuban Missile...more
We have had this museum in our bucket list for years and finally toured it this summer. We are senior citizens and were in high school when JFK was shot. We stayed 4 hours and saw everything and ate a decent lunch at the cafe...More

The hardest part is getting here (if you're...More
What a fascinating museum! An excellent morning spent reliving the life of JFK through beautiful photos and room settings of his family and the White House. A thoroughly enthralling museum for all ages.

Depends on your interest level and who is in your party. We spent 2 and a half hours there. It’s not a large library as others say. However, for a history buff like me, I looked at everything. And spent time outside taking pictures and took a break in the cafe.
