John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum Debuts New Exhibit Showing JFK's Last Days On Cape Cod

Posted: Updated:

HYANNIS, Mass. (AP) — A new museum exhibit tells the story of President John F. Kennedy's last visits to Cape Cod in the months before his assassination.

Officials at John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum say the exhibit includes videos, photos and news clips that look back on the final days of the president's administration through a Cape Cod lens.

Museum Development Director John Allen says visitors will see images including JFK swimming with his children and the president kissing his father's head on the family's porch.

He says the exhibit also strives to capture the family's grief after the death of the president and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy's newborn son, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, in August 1963.

The exhibit also explores how JFK's assassination in November 1963 affected people on the Cape.
