Fees & Reservations

Admission is free to all programs and park areas at the John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site. We do not sell the Annual Pass, Senior Pass, Military Pass or Access Pass. We apologize for any inconvenience. The nearest parks that sell these passes are: Adams National Historical Park (Quincy) and Lowell National Historical Park (Lowell).

Due to the small size of the house museum, tours are limited to nine visitors. Reservations are recommended for groups of five or more and are required for groups of nine or more. Groups larger than nine will be divided into smaller groups; large groups should allow 1-2 hours to tour the site. One adult is required to accompany every nine visitors under the age of 17. Please call the site at 617-566-7937 or email us to make a reservation.

A park ranger speaks in front of a gray house, the John F. Kennedy National Historic Site. A flag is behind her; a diverse group of people are listening.

Did You Know?

The Kennedy kitchen.

Like many middle-class families in Brookline, the Kennedy’s relied upon the many contributions of live-in domestic help. Mary O’Donaghue and Alice Michelan, two first-generation Americans, cooked, cleaned and cared for the children, enabling the family to live their version of the American dream.
