This museum is a great place to learn more about the story of the Kennedy family. Filled with many documents and photos, you will learn a lot. Also, the current temporary exhibit of Obama's photos by Peter Souza is worth a visit.

The staff was very nice and welcoming. We expected to learn more on the biography of Kennedy but the movie we watched is all about Kennedy's speech and without an overall look on his life and that was disappointing for us.
