Massachusetts Archives. The official repository for original papers and correspondence of the Kennedy Administration, it was dedicated in 1979. The building is an impressive site with a huge pavilion facing the Boston Harbor. With the warm air blowing off the ocean, it was a gorgeous walk around to check it out!
The library seemed very unorganized and was pieced together randomly. We walked into an exhibit that told about his 1960 presidential nomination and then were led to the exhibit that showed where his childhood boat was supposed to be. The library/museum jumped around and there really was no consistency in the flow of information.

The museum also houses a huge chunk of the Berlin Wall, moon rocks and many tributes to the Special Olympics. We were taught in school that John F. Kennedy was a influential president and grew up learning about how this great man's accomplishments helped mold America. For decades, we've been fascinated with his story, his life and his legacy. It just seemed a shame his Presidential Library and Museum forgot to tell us about all that.
