  • I'm looking forward to bring my whole family back! Great stimulus for family civic engagement and very entertaining.
  • Attended a talk and book signing. Sat in a replica of the United States Senate chamber! Lots of educational exhibits about our nation's government. Can't wait to come back and learn more!
  • I can't say enough good things about our experience at the EMK Institute. The replica of the Senate chamber is amazing, and the "Today's Vote" program is informative and interactive. The fact that each visitor receives a tablet on arrival and chooses their own profile makes you feel like a part of everything that is going on. We arrived just after opening and stayed easily until 2pm. I highly recommend visiting (and if you are a local, check with your library for discount passes!).
  • Such an amazing educational place! Touching the history of this great country, using technology! I feel lucky to live in Massachusetts where my children can learn about their government in a great place for free!
  • Effective at what it tries to do -- educate visitors on the role of the U.S. Senate and celebrate the political career of Ted Kennedy. The museum is spacious, the exhibits are engaging and memorable, and there is a new and polished look to the building that makes the experience pleasant for all.
