  • 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!).
  • I went here on a class field trip. The time their was very informative. We were able to the history of M. Kennedy and about about becoming a U.S. Senator. The chamber was also very cool and interactive to see.
  • Fantastic facility. Highly informative. Great interactive presentations. A great option for a school trip.
  • Great experience! Wonderful place to learn more about our democracy.
  • I went to the EMK institute today for a field trip, it was an amazing experience. We got to do a variety activities including vote as a "Senator in Training" and visit the office of Senator EMK. This was an overall amazing experience and I would recommend this to people of all ages over 10.

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.
