For us, this museum was a little disappointing. It highlights Jimmy Stewart’s life which is interesting, but the exhibits are showing their age and there’s quite a bit of reading. Also, the museum does not allow photos to be taken. Probably because of camera flash, but most cameras and cell phones don’t use flash anymore. A tad overpriced for the... More

His family and ancestors were honorable, hard working and highly intelligent. His movies and his life was truly wonderful. It was a... More

On that crisp fall Sunday, September 25 I spent a short amount of time at this facility. I tired of the displays and the stuffy atmosphere. I quickly exited and much enjoyed just sauntering Philadelphia Street, and the leafy campus of Indiana University. The university library is open on Sundays--it was interesting chatting with the friendly staff and students.

The museum is in downtown Indiana, PA and not far (walking distance) from the college campus. There is a small admission fee and to see the entire museum for a casual fan of Jimmy Stewart takes about an hour. Original items are in limited quantity with most displays being reprints, photographs, etc. It's clear the community really loves their hometown... More

A group of us attending a class reunion visited the Jimmy Stewart museum. What a treat! My personal expectation was not very great and I was pleasantly surprised by the extent of the displays, the information provided and the large number of display items. James M. Stewart is probably Indiana's more revered son, and the museum helps you to understand... More

Although I lived in Indiana for almost 2 years, just in the very last week of my stay in this city I decided to visit this museum. It's definitely worth to visit. It has a lot of memorabilia along with funny and interesting stories about Indiana most famous celebrity. You must rent the audio tour because without it the experience... More

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.
