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."

The Museum is a multimedia exhibit designed to open a window on the days JFK spent on Cape Cod; days relaxing with family, days as President of the United Sates when the Cape provided a time to slow down, to be reinvigorated and to spend days sailing on the ocean to which he was so constantly drawn.

The Museum’s exhibits features videos and photographs spanning the years 1934 to 1963. It is arranged in thematic groupings to reflect John F. Kennedy, his family, his friends and the Cape Cod he so dearly loved. In addition to photography, a video narrated by Walter Cronkite depicts the President’s Experiences on the Cape.

Each year a new Special Exhibit is developed and for 2014 it is titled “Cape Cod: The Hearth and Home of the Kennedy Family.” The Kennedy family has always been drawn to
Cape Cod and Hyannis Port, especially during the presidency of John F. Kennedy. Get an inside look at the Kennedy home through film, images, and decorative displays. Opening June 2.

Total museum attendance for 2013 was 63,569 up nearly 10 % above 2012 attendance. The Museum has grown each year in its stature as a major destination point on Cape Cod for local residents as well as visitors from across the United States and from countries around the world.
