  • 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. 🥰😍❤
