John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum
The assassination of Boston’s favorite son is burned into the memory of most Americans who lived through that tragic moment in history, but the JFK Presidential Library and Museum is a celebration of John F. Kennedy’s life, not his death. Housed in an I.M. Pei–designed building set on 10 waterfront acres in Dorchester, the museum boasts a collection that includes the unusual (a coconut that Kennedy inscribed with a rescue message for the crew of the PT-109 during World War II), the emblematic (Kennedy’s sailboat Victura), and the trappings of state (everything from Oval Office furniture to a camel saddle gifted by the president of Niger). Jackie Kennedy has her own permanent exhibit (which includes her clothing), and special collections focus on the 1960 presidential campaign and the space race against the Soviet Union. Come on a sunny day and enjoy a picnic and a game of catch on the lawn, or take a stroll on the Columbia Point harbor walk—the fitness-minded JFK would certainly approve.
