They don't allow cameras, but This is my favorite actor in the whole world, so I snapped a few with my phone. I won't share them out of respect for the rules. It was a cute place, lots of photos and some movie props, as well as uniforms he wore. You can see the whole place in about 2 hours... More

Great little museum that needs the support of the public. Great displays of his movies, family life, trophies, awards, friendship photos. Just a great place to visit.

Rainy morning, spent perusing the information and Jimmy Stewart memorabilia. Now there was a talented, humble, prolific actor who also served our country. There is a 25 min. biography of sorts that runs in the theater room. Stop and take a selfie with Harvey, and pick up a bell (for when an angel earns its wings.) Parking on the street... More

We really enjoyed this museum. Learning more about JS raised an already high opinion even higher. Admission was reasonable, and the volunteer staff were very pleasant.

What a lovely hometown tribute to a very special person! The playbills from most of his movies just brought back so many memories! I think I loved every one of his films! And it was lovely to see his home, family and friends and re-discover that he was a real gentleman, loving father and husband and patriot. We loved that... More

The museum is a touching tribute to one of the most beloved actors from a bygone era. It goes from childhood through adulthood of the famed actor. It also has a small theatre in the museum. You realize the legacy of the man and his service to our country. There is so much more to Jimmy Stewart than I realized.... More

Landed in Pittsburgh, stayed overnight & ate dinner there. Drove to Indiana, PA. What a fantastic museum! Everything about Jimmy was there......his life, his movies, all the pictures, all the mementos. We drove to his childhood home for more pictures. Ate at the deli across the street from the museum. It was my favorite trip. Jimmy Stewart was an awesome... More
