Museum is small, but not too big. There is not that much to do or see in Jamestown. You will be surprised how much this couple did for television production. I have always admired Lucille Ball's comedy and her toughness. This museum is a window...More

The museum was fun, if rather dated, some interactive parts didn't work, but it was great to see the sets, clothes, and other memorabilia. My favorite part was where you could "make a commercial".

This is a wonderful museum with lots of neat artifacts. Unfortunately, it seems to focus entirely on the I Love Lucy years. Scant mention is made of Desi's music career or work in later life as a producer and director. Lucy's film work and other...More

It’s small but very informative and well it’s just “special”. I’ve been wanting to come there for years now and made the trip from CT and it didn’t disappoint. Wish them luck in expanding!

We visited the museums late in the afternoon one day last week.For me the best part of the museum was the replicas of their NY and LA apartments.It brought back some good memories of some old Lucy shows.

As a former truck driver, I would ask them if they had a loading dock where you could parallel park for a few hours. Surely they can't get deliveries all of the time. If not, there must be some commercial space on 1st St... More
