The JFK Hyannis Museum captures the years JFK spent at the family compound in Hyannis Port— his time with family and friends, and with national and international persons of prominence. There are four main photographic exhibits available continually, as well as a video gallery hosted by Walter Cronkite. In addition, we present special revolving exhibits on loan from the JFK Library in Boston. Here, at the JFK Hyannis Museum, you will experience all the dimensions of John Fitzgerald Kennedy's life on Cape Cod, as it was. Up close and personal.

Centrally located in Hyannis with frontage on the town marina and harbor, the Cape Cod Maritime Museum serves as a focal point for the Cape and Islands' maritime past, present, and future. From the clambakes of early native Americans, to the heroics of 19th century sea captains, to today, the sea continues to play a vital role in the economic and recreational lives of Cape Codders and visitors.
