Introduction: There are several different museums in Boston, Massachusetts. Some of these museums are historic, science and technology and art museums. Here is a list of my favorite museums in the Boston area.

    JFK Library and Museum

    JFK Library and Museum is all about the life of our nation's thirty fifth president, John F Kennedy. It is a great tribute to the life and times of JFK. This museum is very fascinating to go through. JFK Library and Museum has video, pictures, clothing, jewelry, letters and more from John F Kennedy, his family and his wife. This museum has displays about this life as he was growing up, his life as our president, his marriage to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and his kids. You will even see a beautiful dress, purse and necklace on display that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis wore. This museum has so much detail about JFK up until his assassination which was on Friday, November 22, 1963. JFK was fatally shot while traveling with his wife. This museum has a display about his assassination.

    JFK Library and Museum is located at Columbia Point, Boston, Massachusetts. For more information you can call, (617) 514-1600 or call toll free at (866) JFK-1960. The museum is open 7 days a week. Their hours are 9:00 A.M. through 5:00 P.M. They are closed on New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. The cost of admission is adults $12.00, seniors 62 years old and older and students (with valid college ID) $10.00, kids ages 13-17 $9.00, children 12 and under are free.

    The JFK Library and Museum is my family's favorite museum in Boston. We thought that it was so fascinating to go through and look at President Kennedy's life. He was such an amazing man.

    USS Constitution Museum

    The USS Constitution Museum is during the war of 1812. The USS Constitution Museum and the USS Constitution Ship can both be toured privately or self toured. Both of these are located on the same premise. The USS Constitution Museum has a very interesting video that you can watch and listen to that explains about what happened on the USS Constitution Ship during that time frame. I found this video to be very interesting. I would recommend watching this video which is located in the first room on the right hand side after you enter the museum and past the main desk. You learn what it was like to be a sailor in 1812 in this video. The USS Constitution Museum is filled with various different displays throughout the museum that I found to be interesting and which explains what happened during the war of 1812. There are some hands on displays that kids find very interesting. You will also want to tour the USS Constitution Ship.

    The USS Constitution Museum is open daily year round except for New Years Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The USS Constitution Ship is open Thursday through Sunday in November through March and open Tuesdays through Sundays in April through the end of October. There is a suggested donation to tour the USS Constitution Museum.

    Paul Revere's House dates back to 1680. His house is located on the Freedom Trail. In Paul Revere's house you will find an old bed, table, original chairs, pictures and more. Paul Revere's House is one of the oldest buildings still standing. He owned this house from 1770 to 1800. I found his house to be very interesting historic house to tour.

    Paul Revere's house is self guided and is located at 19 North Square in Boston, MA. For more information, you can call (617) 523-2338. They are open for admission daily year round but closed on Mondays during the months of January, February and March. They are also closed on New Years Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

    The Bunker Hill Museum

    The Bunker Hill Museum is located on the Freedom Trail. Across the street from the Bunker Hill Museum is the Bunker Hill Monument. You can walk up to the top of the monument which is 294 steps from the bottom of the monument to the top of the monument. The Bunker Hill Monument is 221 feet tall. It is quite an amazing view from the top of the monument looking out and well worth the walk up. There is a demonstration out on the field outside the monument. Be sure to cover your ears as you hear gun shot on the field. This is the site of the first major battle in 1775.

    The Bunker Hill Museum is filled with artifacts from the battle. You will find the history of the Bunker Hill Monument and information of the construction of the monument in the Bunker Hill Museum. You will also find displays and exhibits of Charlestown's history and heritage in the Bunker Hill Museum. You will see a model of the battlefield along with information of the battlefield in the museum. There is a 360 degree view of the battlefield.
