Learn About American History at the John F Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum

Located on a 10-acre park on Columbia Point overlooking the sea that he loved, the John F Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum portrays the life, leadership, and legacy of President Kennedy. The museum starts you off with a 20-minute documentary covering JFK's early years. You're then free to roam the exhibits that cover his Democratic presidential nomination, campaign, presidential election versus Nixon, presidency, death, and afterward. There are interesting sections about the space advancements, gifts received from foreign dignitaries, and the White House conservation project led by Jackie (plus a few of her signature dresses, of course).

Admission to the John F Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum is $14 for adults, $12 for student/seniors, and $10 for children. The museum is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and closed on major holidays. Parking is free for museum visitors, and it is also accessible via public transportation.
