Friendly knowledgeable staff. Explained the best way to visit for the best experience. Not just frills and fluff but really explained Lucy’s life and early struggles and career. Who knew 60 movies! So nostalgic. A must visit.

As a life long I Love Lucy fan this was the highlight of our time in Jamestown. It was so cool to get to see so many artifacts from the shows including costumes, props, and of course the replica living room/Hollywood Apt. Getting to see that living room in person and in color was great, and even better was that you are able to pay to get to walk into the apartment and take pictures! Loved seeing all the memorabilia and videos of those who worked on the show. Getting to do the Vitameatavegamin commercial was also a fun little surprise. I also went a bit crazy in the gift shop, but I regret nothing!

I was at this museum 6+ Yrs ago & I an SO HAPPY to see how wonderfully improved it is now! I think it does s good job going thru all of Lucy & Desi accomplishments & life. Its not too much or too little. I see they will be adding more to the ‘home life’ section & i’ll look forward to seeing that as well. Thankyou

Our family really enjoyed this museum. My parents are older, so they grew up watching Lucy. She really is an icon for female comedians. The museum is well done and we enjoyed taking pictures on the recreated set.

Learning about their early years. What a smart business woman Lucy was and Desi with the production of their show.

It was so delightful to see Lucy & Desi’s life through all their memorabilia. It was a treat to see the studios in full color!

This was a great museum. Full of the history of Lucy & Desi, both before & after their renowned TV show. A good mix of audio, visual, & written information. Learned lots of new facts & loved laughing at clips from both the I Love Lucy show & many of Lucy's movies. The staff could have been a little more friendly & helpful, but the museum is well maintained & easy to find.

A nice tribute to a comedy legend team. We got tickets through a special promotion at our hotel and got there first thing. The place is divided into an East and West Gallery and while everyone went to the West, we decided to go to the East.The East Gallery is about the "I Love Lucy Show" and contains numerous costumes, props, sets (like their apartment and the Hollywood Hotel room) and various equipment used to shoot the show. It is a step back in the past and a great tribute to the show and it's stars. They have a nice gift shop and a well placed and clean bathroom.Probably the best museum I have seen dedicated to a single show or movie.We then went to the West Gallery which focused more on Lucille and Desi themselves. They had items from both of there pasts, home movies, Desi's records, Lucille's dresses from various movies and specials and Lucy's Gold Mercedes. They were making some updates to the place but still nice when include the East Gallery.They have a brochure which also gives a map to see the local murals from the show and a map to find Lucy's birth home, her childhood home, her Memorial Park and where she is buried.A very nice and well laid out museum.

A wonderful trip down memory lane featuring, some of Lucy's and Desi's show worn costumes, original pencil written scrips, and photo's. The museum has recreated replica the Arnaz tv apartment show setis that were featured in the tv show. Get a picture standing in front of Lucy's living room, or their west coast hotel room. Maybe even stand in Lucy's Vitavitavegim set and grab a photo.
