Virtual Tours

The John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site can be explored in person or online. These virtual tours, as well as our cell phone tours, provide information about John F. Kennedy's early life and family history in Massachusetts. If you cannot make it to Brookline for a visit, we hope you will enjoy taking a virtual tour from anywhere in the world! The online resources on this page are also great places to learn more after your in-person tour and to be used in classrooms.

These tours are offered seasonally, check out the site's Operating Hours & Seasons for more information.

Ranger Jon visit sites of identity, faith, and community in downtown Boston and the North End and consider questions of transition, permanence, and belonging: How did the Irish and Irish American experience inform their sense of selves? What role did religion and the power of American democracy have in shaping their character? How did the Kennedys and the Fitzgeralds view the communities that made up the city of Boston? How were they shaped by their communities and how was the city transformed by them?
