JFK Presidential Library & Museum

During our trip last March 2008 to Boston, we made sure that we visit the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum because my mom is a fan. The museum is beside the Boston campus of University of Massachusetts. It is accessible via MBTA's JFK/UMASS station. From the station you can hop on a shuttle that will transfer you to the museum.

Before we proceed with the actual visit, we were first briefed about John F. Kennedy's life and what to expect inside the museum in a small theater.

Inside the museum are a lot of items related to JFK's political and personal life. Items dated from his campaign period to his presidency up to his assassination are displayed.

Museum architecture

A painting of Jacqueline

The museum is situated beside a body of water. It was drizzling during our visit and the view might have been better when sunny.

More pictures are available in multiply. Just add me as a friend to view them.
