  • A really cool place, this museum mostly covers the fame of people like James Dean and the creator of Garfield. However, they lack town history like when the highschool was built and things like that.
  • Always a joy to visit. Located in the beautiful town of Fairmount, the museum is a must for any James Dean fan. Don't forget to visit the Garfield Room as well
  • We loved this Museum. The ground floor is dedicated to James Dean and Garfield creator Jim Davis. Upstairs is all about the community. A stop here is incomplete w/o a trip upstairs. Highly recommend.
  • Too crowded but worth seeing it once
  • Awesome place to visit. Love my home town of Fairmount.
