  • Great place, makes me remember how much I loved his humor. Very nice! 🤣
  • This is a great place to enjoy the golden age of comedy with one of the greatest. It is awesome to know that someone that came from such humble beginnings can make it if you just want it bad enough and catch a few lucky breaks along the way. The museum is great, has a lot of Red's old costumes ,video footage, pictures, etc. A must see for young and old!!
  • It was very good I enjoyed it just didn't have a time to take it all in
  • Great little museum. Fascinating look at comedy and Red Skelton. Well worth the visit.
  • I am a distant cousin of Red Skelton (via my 2nd great grandmother, Betsy Jane Skelton) so my sister and I took special delight in visiting the museum. It was a wonderful trip and I would go back again in a heartbeat!
