The Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum celebrates the lives, careers, and legacy of the “First Couple of Comedy” and the incredible impact they had on the world, as well as the pioneering role and remarkable influence that I Love Lucy and Desilu Studios had on the entertainment industry for generations to come.
Through the generosity of Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr., the Lucy Desi Museum proudly preserves a significant collection from their parents’ archives. Costumes, gowns, props, photographs, letters, scripts and awards are among the priceless artifacts on display.
The Lucy Desi Museum features exact re-creations of the studio sets of the most beloved TV comedy of all time – I Love Lucy – including the Ricardo’s New York apartment living room, kitchen, and their Hollywood hotel suite. Get a behind-the-scenes look into the creation and production of the show, plus the opportunity to be the star of your very own Vitameatavegamin commercial and much more.
Be sure to also visit the award-winning National Comedy Center, just three blocks from the Lucy Desi Museum. Inspired by Lucille Ball’s vision for her hometown to become a destination for comedy, the National Comedy Center takes you on a laugh-filled, interactive journey through comedy history.
Plus, there’s more Lucy at the Comedy Center, including her iconic polka dot dress and the opportunity to put yourself in the classic I Love Lucy chocolate factory scene from the episode “Job Switching.” Dual admission to both museums is available.
