Lucy Desi Museum & Center for Comedy, Jamestown
(4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
The Lucille Ball legacy has been proudly honored right here in Lucy’s hometown of Jamestown by the Lucy Desi Museum & Center for Comedy since 1996.

For decades, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz played a vital role in television and on the big screen, and we’re fortunate to have the privilege of preserving their memory and the impact they’ve both had on the world through all of the fun costumes and memorabilia on display awards they were both given, photographs of both their personal and TV lives, and much more!

We’re constantly swapping out exhibits for new ones, so even if you’ve visited the center before, it’s always a new experience like the first time you visited!

  • For anyone who grew up watching I LOVE LUCY, this is the place to be! From photos and memorabilia to the familiar TV sets and props, this museum is thoroughly enjoyable and a great value with its low ...  more »
  • It's a decent museum and center for all things related to Lucy and Desi. Lots of information and memorabilia and attached to the gift store. 
  • Easy to find right in town. Easy parking on the street 2 hours free.Nice display of all that was Lucy and Rickie.

  • For all who are real Lucy fans this is the place. Gift shop has a nice verity.
  • I love this place, I have been here twice and enjoyed every second of it. I have been in the museum once and loved it and want to go again. It was cool to see things Lucy and Desi actually used. This place is a great tribute to the first couple of comedy and I can't wait to go back agin.
  • The Lucy Desi Center was fun. Not fabulous, but fun to read all the details. Did you know that Desi Arnaz revolutionized television broadcasts? Interesting little details and memorabilia. A lot of reproductions, not originals. Someone else said it was $40/person. Not now. It's $20/each. If you're a fan, it's worth it.
  • I LOVE LUCY!!!! GREAT PLACE
  • We went there one time. It was $40 a person and NOTHING to do. The only things that were really there were the gift shop, and a "tour" of the original shooting set. (People were supposed to show us around, but NOBODY came to our aid. Anybody we asked were "busy".) We were there for 10 minutes, and were promptly kicked out once we reached the end. $80 wasted. 0/5. Never going again. Ever. I hate living in this town...
