Fun couple of hours and totally loved seeing Lucy and Desi personal items and learn more about them as regular people. Gift shop had loads and not too badly priced. Glad we made the stop! Everyone was very nice and helpful. Worth the $15 admission!

If you're in Jamestown NY stop in to see this place. Lucille Ball was born in Jamestown and they have a celebration every year. I'm old enough to remember the original "I Love Lucy" shows and it was fun seeing and reading about Desi & Lucy and their lives. They have an original set that looks just like the house on the show.

Visited Jamestown on our way to Niagra Falls. Kind of on the way....maybe an hour and a half or so out of the way...

Being a huge Lucy fan....this was a must do since we were not far. Paid respects at the cemetery, by following the red hearts on the road that led us to the gravesite. Very moving to see balloons with happy birthday wishes still being left. Loved loved loved the Desi-Lucy museum and playhouse. The sets....costumes and history is outstanding. Drove the Jamestown area to find Lucys childhood homes and loved the many buildings with Lucy and Ricky painted on them. Jamestown truly appreciates Lucy and all she has done and continues to do for Jamestown.

We were very impressed by the background information on Lucy and Desi and the development of the show and how it broke ground in so many ways.

The museums houses many of Lucy and Desi personal items. There are clips airing during your trip down memory lane. The staff was extremely friendly
