Comments about Smart Destinations John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum:

I have visited other presidential libraries and this is one of my favorites. They do a wonderful job of teaching you about who he was as a president and a person. I really didn't know as much as I thought I did about JFK after visiting his presidential library. I found it to be really interesting. They really did a great job of making you feel like you had gone back in time. Also, the library couldn't be in a better location! If able, you might want to plan to have lunch while you're there in their tiny cafe and just take it the view!

This is a great museum if you want to learn more about the life of JFK and the other Kennedy members. At the end of the end of the exhibition you arrive in a great open space with an awesome view of the Boston skyline!

One of the best Presidential libraries
By Hot Rod Rider Verified Reviewer from Staten Island, NY on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum:

My husband loves history, so we've been to a few other presidential libraries including the ones for Reagan and Roosevelt. This was just another to check off the list, but I can say it's been my favorite so far. The location on the water is simply stunning and I especially loved the section dedicated to Jackie. I think that no matter your political affiliation, you will find something rewarding here. After you've seen the Museum you can walk outside on the waterfront and get some great pictures.
