JFK Library to undergo $2.5 million makeover to enhance visual, interactive offerings

“John F. Kennedy has been called the first television president, with a visual presence like none before him and few since. A half-century after his death, however, an estimated 80 percent of Americans have no direct memory of him. But the 35th president remains enormously popular, and the Kennedy Library and Museum in Dorchester hopes to bolster and expand that connection through the most ambitious technological makeover since the complex opened in 1979.

Helped by a gift from philanthropist David M. Rubenstein, the museum will expand exhibit space that chronicles Kennedy’s life and legacy with dramatic, new visual offerings and will give visitors more interactive access to documents, speeches, and other papers from his administration.” (via The Boston Globe)
