John F Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

The setting for the library is beautiful – right on Boston Harbor. The museum isn’t huge; after all, he wasn’t President for very long. There is a nice re-creation of the Oval Office – which seems to be a standard feature of presidential museums.

My favorite pieces in presidential museums are the gifts that the President and First Lady receive from kings, prime ministers, and other world leaders. They get some really nice stuff….that they don’t get to keep. My favorite piece was a diamond and emerald encrusted purse.
