Tour Participation Requirements
The spacious John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum overlooks Boston’s scenic Old Harbor. This is the presidential library that set the standard for every one built since. Tour the museum’s three theaters, 25 multimedia exhibits, and other highlights that deftly capture Kennedy’s life and presidential tenure. Your self-guided tour will lead you to some of the best displays that capture JFK, both the man and the president.
See how the tense events of the early 1960s led to lasting changes in American society from JFK’s viewpoint. Experience how the Cuban Missile Crisis, space race, and mounting racial tensions dramatically altered his presidency through personal documents and handpicked effects. Discover how the First Family, especially First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, became influential style icons that continue to impact the fashion world to this day. You can also see items that delve into JFK’s extended family, friends, and contemporaries.
On this tour, you will see that the library and museum feature permanent and temporary exhibits. Some of the permanent exhibits you’ll see during the tour include “The Inauguration of John F. Kennedy,” “Ceremonial and State Events,” and “The Oval Office.” Overseen by the National Archives and Records Administration, the library and museum contain memorabilia, top audiovisual material, documents, and correspondence associated with JFK.
