My wife suggested we visit the Ava Gardner Museum because there is so much misinformation about this wonderful movie star and she thought the museum would be a better review of her life. The town of Smithfield is very proud of Ava Gardner and they have every right to be. Leaving this small town at such a tender age and then going to Hollywood and dealing with the various individuals that make that place so different from a small town was quite a challenge. Some of her life seems tragic and other parts quite exciting. In later life, she did what she pleased and this museum and the docents do a very good job presenting a fair and balanced review of her glorious life. A very nice museum.
