About this activity
When you arrive at the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum in Jamestown, Lucille Ball’s hometown in New York State, you are free to tour the museum complex at your leisure.

See re-creations of sets such as the Ricardo family's New York City apartment from I Love Lucy, and the Hollywood hotel suite where Lucy performed with Harpo Marx. As you listen to excerpts from Desi’s autobiography and explore displays about Lucille and Desi’s life and career together, learn about their influence on American comedy and its relevance today.

Memorabilia buffs will love checking out props from the TV show like the cello and professor outfit from the pilot and ‘The Audition’ episodes, and the lion tamer costume worn by Pepito, the Spanish Clown from episode 52, ‘Lucy’s Show Biz Swan Song.’ Plus, see Lucy’s Emmy awards, and make your own Vitameatavegamin commercial at an interactive display.

We had a lovely trip to James town and this museum..last monday...street parking was free for 2hours and staff friendly and helpful. The museum's were next to each other and gave a good insight into the personal and professional lives of these talented folk.many happy funny and enjoyable times were evoked during the was good to see original doors furniture arrangements film clips and costumes from that era and to know that Lucy's daughter takes a keen interest in the museum still. Thank you for preserving memoirs of these lovely talented folk.this museum is much to be recommended to all who would like a similar sentimental journey

After being so disappointed that the Lucy museum closed at Universal Florida, I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd get the opportunity to visit Lucy's birthplace and the Lucille Ball Dezi Arnaz Museum. We've just returned from a stunning visit and an experience that will remain a lifelong memory. The museum takes you back to childhood and remembering how brilliantly talented and funny Lucy was and that Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel have such a valuable place in our hearts. Without the museum this would all be lost and generations would miss out in understanding where today's comedians learnt their trade! Having Lucie Arnaz narrating your journey through both parts is exceptional, nice touch. Highly recommended along with looking for the Murals close by!

If you are a fan of I Love Lucy, you'll definitely enjoy this place! The replica sets are the highlight of the museum. Artifacts and costumes are also very cool to see. It is not that big, so the longest you can spend in there is about 30 mins to an hour. Gift shop is nice with wide variety, but it is pricey. Would have liked to have seen more options for souvenirs for children.
