This small gem of a museum, containing seemingly every type of Laurel and Hardy memorabilia imaginable, has been assembled with loving care. There is a small theater in the back. Simply ask for the L and H movie of your choice, and it will be played for you. The volunteer on the day of our visit was very friendly and... More

This is a tiny but comprehensive museum located in, Harlem, Georgia, the birthplace of Norvell Hardy. It is a charming stop along a barren stretch of I-20. Well worth the time! Enjoyed viewing some of the old films.

My kids love Laurel and Hardy so we took a day trip out to Harlem. We loved the museum and so did the kids, although it would have been better if they had some more souvineers. Very cute place!

I was priviledged to visit The Laurel and Hardy Museum on 4/11/11 with a group from Carolina Tours located in Lexington SC. Up until this time, I wasn't aware of this museum or even the town of Harlem, Ga. I was very impressed with everything I saw and with the hospitality of the lady in charge that day. My only... More

I'm an avid Laurel and Hardy fan. It's touching to know that their memory is kept alive by the dedication of the museum staff. It's clear that they're doing what they do because they believe, as do I, that Laurel and Hardy have a special place in entertainment history. No comedy duo since has matched their timing, complimentary personalities and... More

This small museum has lots of memorabilia from this great old comedy pair. Our docent was enthusiastic and well informed. We spent about an hour, but the serious fan could certainly browse for longer. A high point was seeing some of Laurel and Hardy's short films.

We are in our late 40's and we loved it! They even have a theater where the Laurel & Hardy movies run continuously. We got us coffee mugs, which are only $5 each. Well worth the visit, considering that the Lucky Lady Pecans Store is right beside the museum. The museum operates with the help of volunteers and proceeds from... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the historical information we learned about both Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel. After looking at the memorabilia and learning facts from a very informed guide, we watched 3 of their movied, 2 talkies and 1 silent. I don't know when i have laughed and laughed for over an hour, almost non-stop. Truly a wonderful place to visit.... More
