JFK Hyannis Museum

JFK Hyannis Museum

“I always go to Hyannis Port to be revived, to know again the power of the sea and the master who rules over it and all of us.” – John F. Kennedy

Featuring three galleries with exhibits and video on the Kennedys on Cape Cod, there is a new Scudder Family Center for Civic Engagement space for special events, museum talks, and private meetings. Additionally, our courtyard offers a unique outdoor venue for special events, and all may be available for private events.  Located in the heart of Main Street Hyannis, our 1926 brick building exudes history and our exhibits about the Kennedy family and their deep connections to Cape Cod create a special ambiance and a memorable visit.  

For private event availability or to schedule a group tour or site visit call Jennifer Pappalardo at 508-790-3077×3 or email Regular admission hours vary by season.
