My wife and I visited the Jimmy Stewart Museum on Sunday, November 2, 2014. If you are a Jimmy Stewart fan you will love it. It is a self guided tour with a small theater where they were playing the Glen Miller Story that day. I would reserve a minimum of an hour if you don't want to watch any... More

IThe muesum appears small, tucked in between the city library and the courthouse where the bronze statue of James Stewart greets you outside as "Everyman," but the museum goes on and on with extra side rooms I didn't even know were there until I got further along! The film biography, the history of his family (fascinating things I never knew... More

As you exit the elevator on the third floor you are greeted by Harvey the rabbit. After paying a nominal entrance fee, the greeter starts your self guided... More

Fans of Jimmy will enjoy this look at his life. Lots of pictures, posters, and memorabilia to see. It will take a couple of hours to see it all, more if you read every caption. There were three movies playing on small screens around the museum. There is also a biographical film in a small theater. Free parking in the... More

This museum was a quaint, one floor walkthrough of James M. Stewart's life. Not only was the memorabilia fun to look through, but the entire museum included time lines from Jimmy's life paralleling U.S. history.

This museum is a little gem ~ well worth the drive from Centre County. We spent about an hour inside ~ could go back again. There is a lot of movie trivia. Real movie stars. I think $7 is a bargain !

Nice tribute to a true american hero. A hollywood icon, his hometown is justifiably proud of him. A great stop for any movie lover.
