  • 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!
  • 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!
  • 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!).
  • 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.
  • Well layedout facility. His office is well done. Use of interactive tablets helps highlight each exhibit. The chamber presentation ended it with a bang. Go! Go! Go!

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
