Cool little museum. Not a lot of wow pizzaz but enough interesting tidbits to keep you amused during the short time it takes to get through the exhibit. I did learn a few things, like about the three cameras and the special editing device they invented so they could edit the show while watching all three camera shots simultaneously - fascinating! Recommend!

While the museum has some very interesting exhibits and information, it does focus on the work done while Lucille and Desi were working together so if you're looking for more about just Lucille Ball's career, you'll find much information missing. But that being said, it does a great job of focusing on the two main shows that Lucille Ball was in and also on Desilu productions. So if you're looking for an in-depth look at Lucille and Desi, this will be a well spent afternoon.

Jamestown itself is a little gem. This museum is everything you ever wanted to know about I LOVE LUCY - and more. Bios of both Lucy and Desi, including family history. All about the show, and Lucy's other shows. Lots of family pics and mementos from a long career.

Very nostalgic. You learn a lot about Lucy and Desi. Who knew he came from such a prominent Cuban family? The replica TV sets are interesting as well.

If you remember this comedy duo, your visit will be very enjoyable as you walk thru the museum and the studio replica. I recalled seeing many of their items on the old TV shows. The guides were very helpful and interactions with them were informative and fun.
