JFK Hyannis Museum

JFK Hyannis Museum

The mission of the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum is to “preserve and promote the legacy of President Kennedy, his family, and their deep connection to Cape Cod.”

John F. Kennedy is revered as one of the nation’s most beloved and iconic presidents. His presidency, though short, was filled with major events from the establishment of the Peace Corp, the Civil Rights Movement, and advancements in the Space Race. The United States in the 1960s was filled with revolution, war, and uncertainty.

Citizens  lived in a state of change and put their faith in JFK to restore society to normalcy and national pride. The Kennedy Museum is a place that keeps these fond memories alive. Hyannis Port has a long history with the Kennedy family, especially John F. Kenned, his wife Jacqueline Kennedy and his children, Caroline and John, Jr. He always kept Hyannis Port close to his heart and will remain intertwined with the history of this town. 

The Kennedy Museum is able to share this piece of history with guests from all over the world. When visitors step inside, they are surrounded with images of the Camelot years evoking strong emotions.  Enjoy three exhibit galleries reflecting on the days JFK spent on Cape Cod; days with his extended family, days as President of the United States in this place that provided time to relax, days sailing on the ocean to which he was so constantly drawn. New for 2022 – walks & talks and Presidential Summers: The Kennedys on Cape Cod exhibit.
