The Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum

Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the “First Couple of Comedy,” have been proudly honored right here in Lucy’s hometown of Jamestown, NY by the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum since 1996. For decades, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz played a vital and pioneeering role in television and on the big screen. We’re fortunate to have the privilege of preserving their legacies, presenting their life stories and showcasing the extraordinary impact they had on the world — through rare artifacts, wardrobe, props, and creative papers on display, as well as the awards they received and photographs and video of their personal and professional lives. There are always new exhibits to explore as we continue to put rarely-seen items from the extensive Lucy and Desi Archive on display.
