John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum
|John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum|
The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum is a museum located in Hyannis, Massachusetts. It consists of a collection of photographs relating to the Kennedys and the times they spent vacationing on the Hyannis Port. It includes a video on the Kennedys, a Kennedy Family Tree, and a statue, "What Could Have Been", portraying John F. Kennedy walking on the beach with his adult son, John F. Kennedy, Jr.. The statue, which was funded with federal money, was once put in jeopardy when funding to pay for it was targeted as pork-barrel spending in Congress. The basement of the museum houses the Hall of Fame for the Cape Cod Baseball League.
The museum itself is housed in the former town hall building. The building was occupied by the town until the 1980s, when the town offices moved across the village green to a building originally built to house the Hyannis State Normal School.
