  1. I enjoyed seeing this post about the JFK Library! I love museums and this is one that I’d want to visit if we ever visit Boston again. There’s a JFK exhibit at the Fab Fair but it cost $5 and it was in a separate building (not where the Beatles exhibit was). Now I’m thinking I should have sprung the extra $5 to see it.

      Hi CC – Yeah, I decided to skip the JFK exhibit since I had just been to the library! I didn’t think it would compare! I really enjoyed walking through and looking at the little details and things they decided to put up to showcase JFK. This was my first presidential library visit – I uh, thought there’d be more books, silly me. 🙂

  2. I totally want to go to that library. I love visiting museums and libraries. I remember there was a time when I was fascinated with reading about the life of JFK (some time in middle school). And I learned plenty about the 60’s from watching “The Wonder Years” lol.

      Hi Miss Kim – Haha yes I feel I learned a lot about the 60’s from the Wonder Years as well – I loved that show! I love history and learning about things and I really like Presidential history as well (due to a really excellent class I took about 20th Century American Presidents in college). I’d like to check out the other presidential libraries if I get the chance. I wish I had visited Truman’s library when I visited Missouri in the past but I wasn’t able to!

    I was at the JFK Library earlier this year, and took many of the same photos you did. I loved the 1960s items, and my mom used to have a hair dryer very similar to the one displayed. It was a very fascinating museum.

      Hi Sandy – I loved the 60’s stuff! I took other photos, too, but didn’t want to post too many of them. I loved walking through the museum and reading all the tidbits and information. I also liked the photos they had of the kids playing around in the Oval Office. Very nice museum! Makes me want to visit more presidential libraries.
