In 1961, President Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy brought a new sense of style to the White House. From small private parties to state dinners to lavish affairs, the Kennedy’s always entertained with warmth, hospitality and grace bringing artists, writers, scientists, poets, and musicians together to mingle with politicians, diplomats, and statesmen. Their commitment to culture, art and music inspired an American renaissance in imagination and creativity. That spirit lives on today at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. As part of our mission to celebrate President Kennedy’s vision, we invite you to share in his legacy of leadership, inspiration and gracious entertaining.

With breathtaking views of Boston, the Harbor Islands and the sparkling waters off Columbia Point, your guests will enjoy a memorable experience, no matter what time of day or year they visit. Please, let us introduce you to the JFK Library experience.
