Hi, fellow Lucy fans! Long time, no update ;)

My family and I took a little trip to Lucille Ball's hometown of Jamestown, NY for the day yesterday - something I've been wanting to do for about 10 years now - to see the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum, and Desilu Studios! I highly recommend it for all Lucille Ball fans, it was so surreal and wonderful to see all that history up close (and in colour ;)). I also recommend paying the extra $7 for the guided audio tour, narrated by Lucie Arnaz; she adds a lot of interesting extra info to the exhibits.

I took a ton of photos in the Desilu Studios half of the museum, but photography wasn't allowed in the half dedicated to Lucy and Desi's personal lives. Here are a few of the many photos:

The exterior of the museum


The Ricardos' apartment


"Do you know where I can find a feller named Risky Riskerdo?"


A closeup of Jess Oppenheimer's desk, with the proposal for the I Love Lucy pilot, and part of the script for another episode!


The hotel room in California


"I am the queen of the gypsies!"


The iconic spotted dress!


There's so much more to see there, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone who's thinking of attending, even though they do change the exhibits every so often. Each half of the museum has its own gift shop, as well, each with different merch to drool over ;)

While you're in town, I'd also highly recommend a meal at Babalu Café, a Lucy-themed diner about a block away from the museum, and right beside the Lucille Ball Little Theatre. Good food, reasonable prices, and the staff are incredibly friendly and fun. You also get a homemade chocolate at the end of the meal, like the ones from the candy factory episode of I Love Lucy; it was some of the best chocolate I've had in a long time, too.

There are a few other Lucy-related things to see in the area as well, such as the house she was born in and the house she grew up in (but people live there, so you can't go inside), her grave-site, and a few murals throughout the town. And during the summer they have a comedy festival in her honour (more info on the museum website linked above). They'll be opening a general comedy museum in town next year, as well :)

If you love Lucy, this is something you can't miss!
