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

It is a standard activity at our house to take our guests to the front of the Indiana Court house and take their photo with Jimmy Stewart. Indiana PA is a lovely little town and it is fun to show off one of our most famous residents. We have also taken a few to the JImmy Stewart Museum. Every one... More

The life and career of this amazing American is displayed in depth and with dignity in the museum. An added bonus is the setting in the quaint and charming downtown of Indiana, Pennsylvania.

His father ran a hardware store on the current location of the museum. The walk/don't walk verbal instructions counting down a ten count till the... More

And who isn't a Jimmy Stewart fan? My 24 year old daughter went with me. She doesn't know Jimmy that well, but enjoyed the history and old movie posters. After about an hour and half, we went to lunch. Then I went back for another 3 hours till they closed. Interesting to find out about his boyhood and the history... More
