So far, we have visited five Presidential Libraries.
William J. Clinton
George H.W. Bush
Lyndon B. Johnson
Dwight D. Eisenhower
John F. Kennedy
If doesn’t matter what your political affiliation, each and every Presidential Library is very much worth visiting. They are not just about that president but also a museum of the years in which he served. It’s a great way to look back on and study the history of a very short time period. They also provide an interesting look inside life in the White House, the First Ladies, children, pets, and a personal side of the presidents. We have enjoyed every library.
I think what we liked most about JFK’s Library was the beautiful views of Boston Harbor. The library is on the campus of University of Massachusetts Boston.
It was interesting to look back on JfK’s boyhood and college days, his love of the sea, and those things that influenced him early life. Inside, the museum is very beautiful and definitely reflects the style of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. It was also very interesting to watch old tapes of JFK talking about different issues he dealt with as president.
The day before we visited this library, we visited the library of John Quincy Adams. That one is not considered an official library because it does not also house documents from his time as president. Still it was interesting to visit two libraries from presidents from two very different time periods.
