Public Programs

Free Fun Friday

July 14, 2017, 10:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.


On July 14, 2017, the Edward M. Kennedy Institute is participating in the Highland Street Foundation’s “Free Fun Fridays” and will offer visitors no cost admission. See what you’ll experience here.

The Institute is located on Columbia Point in Boston, adjacent to the JFK Presidential Library and Museum. The Massachusetts Archives and Commonwealth Museum are located directly across from the Institute.

Due to the anticipated high volume of traffic, we strongly encourage visitors to take public transportation to and from this event. Further, all visitors are discouraged from bringing large bags to the Institute. Please see the bag & coat check note below.
