Personal, Political Artifacts At John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

In honor of the recent election, DayTrippers takes a tour of the incredible John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, which houses a large collection of personal and political artifacts. 

Situated on Boston's Columbia Point, the museum's waterfront location reflects the 35th president's passion for nature. 

"You get a sense of the sky and the sea and the weather changing and being outside," says curator Stacey Bredhoff.  "It's a very special part of being here." 

Adults can revisit and remember Camelot while children learn a lot about Civil Rights and public service. 

DayTrippers explores the museum's new exhibits: a large-scale Picasso, loaned to the library to mark the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the actual space capsule that helped Alan Shepard become the first American in space.
