  • The comedy museum was one of the coolest museum experiences of my life. When you enter, you get a coded wristband. You waive it in front of a display that asks you to choose between a whole bunch of c...  more »

  • Better than we expected. We started with the Lucy museums, which tell the stories of I Love Lucy and of Lucy and Desi. Then a short walk to the National Comedy Center, which was even better than we expected. The experience is tailored to visitors based on a questionnaire visitors fill out at kiosks before entering. Make sure you take the time to completely answer the questions. You can check into exhibits with your wrist band, and the experience is then tailored to your answers. A lot of laughs and some interesting information. Well worth the drive to Jamestown!
  • Unbelievable gem of a find. Came for Lucille ball museum which is fantastic on its own but they have tickets to this place and it is unbelievable. State of art tech to help you interact with the comedy. Decades of comedy history and you know that big money was donated by this genre. The blue room is a must. Don't skip it, at all. I'm very happy that we stumbled on this gem.
