Jackie Kennedy Summer Exhibit Opens At Cape Museum

HYANNIS, Mass. — A special summer exhibit on Jackie Kennedy’s life on Cape Cod has opened at the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum.

The exhibit includes photos, handwritten letters and other artifacts from her time on the Cape.

The curator said the exhibit captures Kennedy enjoying carefree days with her family, a different glimpse of a woman who was an international sensation.

It includes a 1953 LIFE Magazine pictorial depicting time she spent on the Cape with John F. Kennedy when they were engaged to be married.

Other images chronicle Jackie Kennedy’s life on the Cape during her husband’s presidency, when the couple and their children would frequent Hyannis Port.

The exhibit also includes a display about Jackie Kennedy’s 1962 India visit while she was First Lady.
