Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy's body will travel for at least two hours from his Cape Cod home to Boston, where it will lie in repose for two days before his funeral at the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
A family spokesman said Wednesday that Kennedy's body will pass through sites that were significant to him as the hearse heads to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum on Thursday.
Kennedy will lie in repose at Smith Hall, ringed by an honor guard including representatives from each of the four military branches. A memorial service will be held there Friday.
President Barack Obama will deliver a eulogy at a funeral Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Basilica on Saturday.
Kennedy died Tuesday at age 77. He will be buried Saturday near his slain brothers, John and Robert.
