  • The museum was more and larger than I expected. You'll love learning new facts about Lucy and Desi's histories as well as seeing and reading all that you've seen on TV and in the movies.  more »
  • dated and quite a few empty walls in these two buildings(on the same street; separated by 1 or 2 other stores); but if you loved Lucy shows like I did, it is a fun museum...mostly sets, show...  more »
  • Simply delightful to wander through the museum and relive my childhood memories of I Love Lucy and to be more informed on her long career and Desi's too.  more »
  • Wonderful! Beautiful sets, memorabilia, and wardrobe. Alot of interesting information. Gift shop has tons of variety and not outrageously over priced (looking at you Disney). Would absolutely recommend!
  • If Lucy and Desi were part of your childhood, you'll totally enjoy this museum. The restored sets are great. And it's interesting to learn how a TV show was produced in the early years.
  • Staff were very nice. They had a fair selection. A tight wad like me was pleased to see they had a few items on clearance. Both my husband and I were surprised the local hotels did not have a Lucy designated Channel. We thought that would have been a cute idea for her home town.
  • Very friendly staff and nice museum! I loved seeing all of the outfits and awards.
  • Amazing! I absolutely LOVE Lucille Ball she is my favorite of all time! This was an amazing experience and I cant wait to visit again with my mother and sisters. 🥰😍❤
