The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston had the highest number of online visitors of the 13 presidential libraries in fiscal year 2014, according to figures provided by the National Archives.
More than 4.5 million people visited the library virtually. The library with the next highest online attendance was the Harry S Truman Library in Independence, Mo., at about 3 million visits.
The Kennedy Library ranked lower when it came to museum attendance. It had the fourth highest number of visitors at nearly 200,000, behind the William J. Clinton, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush libraries.
The Kennedy Library also came in fourth in daily research visitors, according to the National Archives data, with 1,082 researchers per day.
The library has welcomed more than 8 million visitors since it opened on Oct. 20, 1979. The only other presidential library to exceed that number of visitors is the Lyndon B. Johnson Library, which was dedicated more than eight years before the Kennedy Library.
