  • We had so much in this museum. It is so informative and easy to get through quickly. I would recommend to anyone who enjoyed I Love Lucy and Lucille Ball.

  • If you remember the show, you will find the museum interesting. A good amount of memorabilia and it was interesting to read about their history. It doesn't take that long to get the museum but it was a different fun stop on our road trip. Buy online and take advantage of some of the discounts. The gift shop was a little pricey for some of the items (a little picture frame was $30).
  • If you have love and appreciation for "I Love Lucy" , "Being the Ricardo's" then you will enjoy this museum. I lived in WNY for 18 years and never went to this museum and wish I had earlier. My step brother and his wife went with us and they had not been there in their 26 years of life either. The staff was very nice, the collections were neat to see and being able to recognize some of the items Lucy had wore. I highly reccomend this experience!
