Web Site of the Week: John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum is housed in a gorgeous building designed by noted architect I.M. Pei. For those who can’t make it to Boston to visit, the associated website is full of relevant information about President Kennedy’s life, speeches, presidency, and legacy. This section of the site is dedicated to seven interesting interactive exhibits, including “We Choose The Moon,” “The President’s Desk,” and “White House Diary.” In “The President’s Desk,” visitors can explore Kennedy’s work space. This exhibit includes items from his travels, like the famous coconut he carved after his ship, the PT-109, was attacked off the Solomon Islands. The “We Choose The Moon” area contains archival photos and footage describing how President Kennedy helped lead the quest to land a manned spacecraft on the moon. The “White House Diary” takes visitors on an interactive tour through each day of the Kennedy precedency, highlighting the speeches, meetings, conferences, and other activities that commanded his time in office.
