Wasn't sure about what would be here for Jimmy Stewart home town. I went with my brother doing our last trip here last January. Went up to the second floor and had an interesting view of his life here in Indiana,PA. Had nice displays for his movies and life. Sitting here on the main street waiting for my brother reminded...

We went to college at IUP and we're back for a visit. The museum opened after we graduated but we heard about Jimmy Stewart throughout our time there. The staff were phenomenal- they were engaging and checked on us often to see if we were enjoying ourselves and had any questions. It was nice that they also offered a military... More

This is an essential stop for friends and family visiting the area for the first time. Nothing quite like it. Word of caution--don't put the visitor sticker on a fleece jacket!!!

The Jimmy Stewart Museum, in Indiana, PA, is a must see for Jimmy Stewart fans. It's on the 3rd floor of the Community Building. Both stairs and elevator are available. Was our 1st visit, and by mistake went through the library entrance. They were very nice and directed us to the museum. The admission fee is $8 for adults, $7... More

A very unique experience. This is a nice little museum that you can see in less than two hours. They have done an excellent job with material from the life of Jimmy Stewart. In addition there is a 45 minute movie of his career and life. This also is well worth the time. My wife and I both thought that... More

Perfect little museum for any fan of Jimmy Stewart. Nice collection of personal and movie memorabilia. Small theater that shows A&E documentary of Stewart's life and career. Very friendly staff, volunteer Laura was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend and worth the $8 admission, $7 for seniors, free for Poocas.
