Whether you grew up with Lucy or know of her because of parents or grandparents, there's something new to learn here. I was born the same year as Little Ricky so I fall into the "grew up with" group. Yet I didn't know much about how Lucy got to be "Lucy" and nothing, really, about Desi's youth. (For instance, I didn't know Desi played high school basketball in Miami.) There are lots of photographs and several opportunities to watch video. The museum is broken up into two collections in two buildings next door to each other. You'll get a wristband to get into both. In addition to costumes the highlight is the re-creations of sets. It was so cool to see them in *color*. On the wall facing one set is a wall-high photo of an actual audience watching a taping, so you can imagine being there. You can spend as little as an hour hitting the highpoints, or longer if you stop and read each plaque and watch all the videos. After, be sure to visit Lucy's grave in the Lakeview Cemetery. If you enter through the main gate on Lakeview Ave, just follow the red hearts and arrows.
