Harborside view

A beautiful view warms the heart to see our former President's memorial. The beach and harbor are perfect for photos.

It's easy to spend a few moments at Hyannis harbor at the Memorial. It is large enough that one can read the information while others gather as well.

Took a visitor here, the only way I get to see things sometimes. Had shown them the museum in town but they also wanted to see the Memorial in spite of it being a cold, damp, dreary day.

To be honest I thought that the memorial to one of the most impactful and popular presidents would have been something on a somewhat grander scale.

The museum is small by NYC/DC/Philadelphia standards but gives you the highlights of JFK's career, some great photographs, and features a personal look at his relationship with his family and his close work with RFK. Well worth the visit, I left with a renewed appreciation of the legacy and life of a great American.

Inspiring and immaculately maintained memorial in a beautiful setting. Free short term parking available for cars and coaches and public toilets too. Nice beach and small stream outlet to sea with some lively beach front properties.

This is a great memorial! It is on the ocean. We took the kids and enjoyed it very much. We stayed and went to the beach after.

The memorial is adjacent to the Korean War memorial and is very understated and interesting with a view of the bay where Kennedy liked to sail . It is worth the visit.
