New Interactive Module Lets You Take a Seat at President Kennedy's Desk



As part of the 50th anniversary celebration of President John F. Kennedy's first year in office, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum released an interactive digital desk to allow visitors to browse through the facsimile desk of President Kennedy and check out some of the historical documents.

“I hope users will feel they are sitting at the President’s Desk themselves, and will be excited to bring history to life in this dynamic setting,” said Caroline Kennedy, President of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation. “My parents shared a love of history, and I know they would have enjoyed this exhibit themselves.”
