  • Beautifully kept. And staff very friendly and helpful. A well kept secret.
  • After living in Boston and visiting the town of Brookline for so many years, we finally made it to the JFK birth home. From Downtown Boston, it's about a 15 minute ride on the Green Line (C) train. Get off at Coolidge Corner and from there it's about a 5-7 minute walk to this site. The site is open Wednesday through Sunday. You can only view the home on your own at certain hours each day (check website), otherwise, they do offer a free 30 minute tour. I highly suggest you take the tour. It highlights the early years of the Kennedy family. Not all the furnishings actually belonged to the family but it does give you sense of what a home in Boston was like in the early 1900's. The entrance is located in the back of the house and on a quiet residential street in Brookline.
  • Just passed along the street. Will definately come back again for a visit....
  • The house has historically set up rooms with an abundance of extremely knowledge staff. While a fairly small tour, the presence of a movie and well informed staff and regular tours make this a great destination.
  • Excellent place to connect with the young life of our 35 president. I found it very accessible and moving. We had an excellent tour guide too.
