  • Thorough museum that really goes into the various aspects of the life of John F. Kennedy. Although the museum is a bit dated, it still has a plethora of information and images relating to the life of our President.
  • Very informative and 2 tickets for their price of one!!!
  • Very cool historical site. Everything and more you would want to know about the Kennedys.
  • Total letdown. I thought there would be artifacts and such. It was all photos and timelines. Not worth the price of admission.
  • Great place to visit while in Cape Cod. It's small enough where you can get a definitive history on JFK without wasting your entire vacation in one place. Pictures, videos, and other memorabilia really got me to understand the man. The museum also houses the Cape Cod Baseball Hall of Fame in the basement . JFK Musuem is a must if you're on Main Street during your visit to Cape Cod.
