American comedienne Lucille Ball was born in Jamestown, New York, so it's here that the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum and Center for Comedy was opened in 1996.
The museum's exhibits include a recreation of the “I Love Lucy” TV sets, including Ricky's nightclub, as well as memorabilia and artifacts from the show. There are costumes, personal photographs, and awards on display.
The facility is also a “Center for Comedy,” which hosts an annual comedy festival, a comedy film festival, and a “comedic education program” that is a partnership with a university. Classes are for adults or children ages 11-17, and range in topics from improv to stand-up.
The Luci Desi Museum is open Monday-Saturday 10am-5pm, and Sunday 11am-4pm. Admission is $15 for adults, $14 for seniors, $10 for children ages 6-18, and your ticket includes the Lucy Desi Museum and the Desilu Studios TV set recreations.
