  • Located in Jamestown, NY, it is the birthplace of Lucille Ball. The museum offers a look at the personal lives of Lucy and Dezi and in a separate building next door, it's all about "I Love Lucy". Ther...  more »

  • Fun to see props, costumes and set reproductions from one of the best TV shoes ever! You can recreate the Vitameatavegamin scene, watch TV clips and see some of Lucy and Desi's lives before they started this landmark show.
  • Glimpse into history Great if you're into that sort of thing
  • A charming curation and tribute to the television superstar from Jamestown. Lots of neat artifacts and clothing items with by Lucy and Desi at various dinners, awards shows, movies and TV shows. There are also some random items, such as Milton Bradley board games endorsed by Lucy, advertisements for Formica flooring from the 60s, and even a motorhome advert. A re-creation of the Ricardos' living room and Beverly Hills penthouses is a highlight. While all this is interesting, I left with the feeling that the museum is very much a continuous work in progress, and that could really be a five star attraction with a bit more effort. If you're in the area, it's worth a visit!
  • great place to visit for all Lucy fans.
  • I wasn't sure what to expect but feel it was equipped with more than I expected. The museum included costumes, dialect, replica sets, movies, Nd. Few hands on stations. Set aside a half hour or more. It is a self guided tour. Received a free ticket? Interested in I love Lucy? Intrigued in any way? Go! Afterwards you will enter a gift shop that is worth browsing. Then head over to Babalu for lunch or a mid afternoon snack.
