JFK Hyannis Museum brings back ‘Ripple of Hope’


The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum plans to commemorate the life and legacy of Robert F. Kennedy as it reopens for the 2021 season on Saturday, April 17.

“The theme ‘Ripple of Hope’ comes from his most famous and powerful speech, delivered in Cape Town, South Africa,” said the exhibit curator, Rebecca Pierce-Merrick. “It’s a fitting title for our exhibit as well, because that’s exactly what his life of public service created – a ripple of hope that continues to reverberate through the generations since his passing.”

The exhibit begins with Robert Kennedy’s early years within the Kennedy family, including rarely seen images of his time on Cape Cod.

However, its focal point covers his time serving as the U.S. Attorney General, his election to the U.S. Senate, and culminating with his inspirational presidential campaign, which began on March 16, 1968 and ended with his death on June 6, 1968.
