Stewart fan so enjoyed the movie and displays. The staff was quite helpful and accommodating - we came in with only an hour until closing.

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

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
