Museum The Kennedys information
US president John F Kennedy has held a special place in German hearts since his defiant ‘Ich bin ein Berliner!’ solidarity speech in 1963. This private exhibit addresses the president's continued mystique as well as such topics as the Berlin visit and his assassination in Dallas through photographs, documents and relics.
Among the stand-out relics are JFK's reading glasses and a crocodile-leather briefcase, Jackie's Persian-lamb pillbox hat and a hilarious Superman comic book edition starring the president.
