John F. Kennedy Presidential Library And Museum

Columbia Point

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum is dedicated to the memory of our nation's thirty-fifth president and to all those who through the art of politics seek a new and better world.

Located on a ten-acre park, overlooking the sea that he loved and the city that launched him to greatness, the Library stands as a vibrant tribute to the life and times of John F. Kennedy.

Come tour our Museum which portrays the life, leadership, and legacy of President Kennedy, conveys his enthusiasm for politics and public service, and illustrates the nature of the office of the President.

Students and scholars can also arrange to conduct research using our collection of historical materials chronicling mid-20th century politics and the life and administration of John F. Kennedy.

I've lived in Boston my entire life and have never gone to the JFK library museum until recently. What a gem! Spent a little less than 2 hrs here. JFK received a C minus in public speaking before college - there is hope in us all!

This has become one of my favorite public spaces in Boston. I’ve been three times within a few weeks and i find there is always something that i missed before. Permanent exhibit is thoughtful and inspiring and the JFK100 exhibit is very well done.

If you wanted a one stop shop for everything JFK this is it. This museum will help you understand how JFK came to become the leader of the free world. There are a lot of artifacts of of his childhood leading up to his presidency. There are also other exhibits that showcase the accomplishments of the other Kennedy’s that have placed their stamp on history. You will want to give yourself 2-3 hours to get through from beginning to end.

My husband and I are new to the city, and were absolutely delighted to visit this museum. It's the best one we've visited in years. The museum really made JFK the man come alive, and showcased his place in history. We definitely teared up by the end, and were rewarded with a spectacular view of the harbor at the end of our visit. Highly recommended.

Amazing place to go visit, just wished I'd decided to go earlier in the day, turned up at 4 so only had an hour to wander round, but even still paying $14 it was fully worth it! Free parking is a bonus too after getting ripped off at other venues! Highly recommended, will be back again soon to spend a lot longer soaking up the life of JFK
