The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum on Main Street in Hyannis currently has 3 exhibits: “Ripple of Hope” (focusing on the life and legacy of Robert F. Kennedy), “Creating Camelot” (on loan from the Newseum in Washington, D.C.) features an extensive portfolio of intimate and iconic photographs taken by Jacques Lowe, JFK’s personal photographer and “JFK at 100” (which celebrates the centennial of JFK’s birth and the place he loved and called home – Cape Cod).

This single floor small museum skims over the Kennedy family history. As if you were living in the 60's the museum paints JFK and RFK as family men who gravitated toward government service because Joe died in WWII. If you are a fan of the Kennedy mystique and Camelot this is the place for you. The photos and memorabilia are wonderful. If you are a fan of history and a summation of the pluses and minuses of the Kennedy history please stay away.

Not worth the money. Buy or take a library book out to read. This is not a very good museum. No bathrooms! Most of the visitors I saw were elderly. Help not very helpful. This was overcrowded with nothing to see. There are a lot of things to do in Hyannis, but visiting this museum is not one of them. From the outside the building looks impressive, but it’s not the case.

Nice place to visit, as well as educational. People there are warm, friendly and knowledgeable. It is small and one can generally complete the self-tour in 90 minutes. Worth stopping in.

A lovely pictorial history of the life of JFK and Jackie. There is also a room dedicated to John, Jr, but surprisingly little information about Carolyn.
