Very nice overall presentation. Extensive articles, artifacts and collection of Jimmy Stewart collection. Movies run daily. Offer a 25 or 45 minute movie about him.

I enjoyed the displays and especially movie poster. I understand you can watch a movie there which would be awesome on large screen.

The museum is small, being on the 3rd floor of an old mansion like home. It starts off with photos from his 80th birthday party and then takes you through his life as you walk through 6 or 7 rooms. They do a great job...More
