The Kennedy era springs to life at this dramatic complex overlooking Dorchester Bay, about a half-hour drive south of Boston center (also accessible by T). Photos, memorabilia, and audio and video recordings capture the 35th U.S. president in vibrant style. Visits start with a 17-minute film about his early life, narrated by Kennedy himself, using cleverly edited audio clips. Displays start with the 1960 presidential campaign and include the Cuban Missile Crisis, the president’s brother Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, the civil rights movement, the Peace Corps, the space program, First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, and JFK’s 1963 assassination and funeral.
