  • What a gem of a museum! We spent several hours here, mostly because we watched a great movie (one is shown every day), and read everything about this amazing actor and human being. The museum offers.....  more »
  • The Jimmy Stewart Museum was an unexpected delight. It has an extensive collection of awards, photos, personal effects and memorabilia from the beloved actor. The museum is spread throughout several rooms and features a retro cinema area that routinely shows various Stewart films and documentaries about his life, as well as several TVs scattered throughout its rooms that showcase different films within the Stewart canon. It is a definite must-visit for film buffs and Jimmy fans alike. Nestled in the sleepy, small town of Indiana, PA, the museum and its knowledgeable staff embody Stewart's quote, "Always remember to be nice to people."
  • The entrance was a little tough to find. It is set back from the library building a bit and not at all obvious from the street. Apparently, there is limited free parking behind the building, but by the time we knew that, we had already fed a parking meter and were inside the museum. It is a small museum, but has some interesting things. Being a film buff, I had thought we had seen a lot of Mr. Stewart's performances. We learned that we have some homework to do! :-) The staff were very nice, but what is with museums like this not allowing photography? They have a theater that plays Mr. Stewart's movies. We didn't stay long enough to see a feature film, but did watch the biographical film. It was very good. Recommended.
