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.

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.

Great little museum filled with lots of photos and movie posters of Jimmy Stewart. Allow time for reading and viewing some of his old movies. Not very busy, I think $7 is a little too much.

If you are in Indiana, PA, don't miss the opportunity to visit the Jimmy Stewart Museum. The highlight is a 45 minute film biography of Stewart but this museum, located in his hometown, has a large collection of memorabilia on display and free weekly showings of his films. When you are done, you can climb up Vinegar Hill and see... More
