My husband and I decided to travel to Indiana, PA, to watch It's a Wonderful Life, my favorite movie, for a holiday gift. The viewing was excellent (comfy seats, big screen, fun intro). We didn't expect to enjoy viewing a biography of his life and museum full of interesting artifacts from his life. Well done! Also loved walking around the... More

Went to the museum on December 26 to have something to do. I was very surprise at the quality of the museum on Mr Stewart life. There a short film, movie posters, and alot of photos. Mr Stewart was a great supporter of the Boy Scouts. The gift Shop had a list of his 81 films. Senior discount. I send... More

Alright, so maybe I'm a bit over the top fan for the the movie "Its a Wonderful Life" but coming here was more than wonderful. I admired Jimmy Stewart and his work so much before I came but realized how much I didn't know of him until I was here. I love the little theater that plays his movies. If... More

I really enjoyed this museum. It has some great pictures, awards, movie posters, and historical items of Jimmy's. I really enjoy how they showed Jimmy's family timeline and events incorporated into history. I only spent an hour, as they were closing, but I definitely could have spent 2 or 3 hours reading everything. I really enjoyed the visit, as we... More

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

The museum was on our list of things to see while touring Western Pa. The museum is centrally located on Pennsylvania Street, with parking in the rear of the County Community building. 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.
