John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

When you bring your class trip on a self-guided tour through the Museum’s 25 multimedia exhibits, they will learn all about the life and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. They’ll become part of the pivotal events of the 1963 civil rights’ movement, explore the “what-ifs” of the Cuban Missile Crisis, follow the historic moon landing, and more. Permanent exhibits follow the campaign trail of a young Senator Kennedy in his quest for the presidency in 1960, explore his use of televised news conferences to reach more potential voters, and provides a close-up look of his family’s history.
