The soaring white concrete and glass building housing the John F. Kennedy and Museum is located just to the south of Boston overlooking the sea. A profoundly spiritual and symbolic structure.
At the Kennedy Museum, relax in the theatre for a short introductory film narrated in part by JFK. Incorporating historic television footage and cherished family home movies, this film provides the background, family and political accomplishments of the ‘Camelot’ legend. Following the presentation, you’ll have free time to independently explore the museum. Featuring an extensive range of audio-visual displays, you’ll have an opportunity to stand in a recreation of the Oval Office and experience the drama of President Kennedy’s historic address to the nation on Civil Rights, or perhaps capture the inspirational spirit of the space program.
Your scenic tour of Boston will take you past Copley Square, bordered by the architectural wonders of Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library. In the heart of the city and overlooking the green oasis of Boston Common, lies one of the most elegant and wealthiest neighbourhoods in the city, Beacon Hill. You’ll pass a number of sites along the Freedom Trail, including the gold dome of the Massachusetts State House, Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall, and the Old South Meeting House where the Sons of Liberty plotted the Boston Tea Party. Following this scenic overview of the city, you will return to the pier.
