The legacy of Lucille Ball has been proudly honored right here in Lucy’s hometown of Jamestown by the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum since 1996. For decades, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz played a vital role in television and on the big screen, and we’re fortunate to have the privilege of preserving their memory and the impact they’ve both had on the world through all of the fun costumes and memorabilia on display, awards they were both given, photographs of both their personal and TV lives, and much more! We’re constantly swapping out exhibits for new ones, so even if you’ve visited our museum before, it’s always a new experience like the first time you visited!

With infinite gratitude, we salute Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz with our mission: Their Lives. Their Loves. Their Legacy of Laughter. The healing power of love and laughter has and always will be the driving force that makes Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz TV favorites for people of all ages.
