JFK: The Exhibition facts, figures

Guide to the Kennedy exhibit
At the entrance to the exhibit, a model of John F. Kennedys childhood home in Brookline, Mass., invites you to step back in time to learn about the public and private life of the 35th president of the United States.
The 20 galleries span Kennedys experiences in World War II, his marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier, his years in politics, his family life, his visit to Tampa four days before his death in Dallas, the somber journey to Arlington Cemetery and, finally, the legacy of the president who spent only 1,000 days in office.
