John F. Kennedy Museum

Field review by the editors.

Dorchester, Massachusetts

See President Kennedy's famous Oval Office rocking chair, Jackie's designer outfits, and the gold medal JFK received from TV executives when he started televising his press conferences. There's even a real Mercury space capsule, the one that John Glenn rode into orbit in 1962. You can purchase an exact mahogany replica of JFK's peek-a-boo Oval Office desk for $6,500 in the museum gift shop.
