Best of Boston

2023 Best Museum Venue

John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

Whether an intimate affair for a few dozen revelers or a soiree with a few hundred, the JFK Library and Museum’s sun-filled Pavilion is a blank slate for the most elegant of ceremonies and cocktail hours. And no wonder: Its nine stories of soaring glass walls highlighting panoramic ocean views is the work of the iconic architect I.M. Pei. After the vows, guests can head over to the reception steps away in the equally-as-impressive Smith Hall. Now that sounds like a wedding for the history books.
