James Maitland Stewart

The Jimmy Stewart Museum highlights the successful Hollywood career of Jimmy Stewart in movies, TV, theater, radio, and his life as a WWII military hero, civic leader, and family man. There are three large galleries, two smaller galleries, two rotating exhibit hallways, a vintage 50-seat theatre, and a unique gift shop. Showcased in the museum are vintage movie posters, pictures, movie costumes, props, military uniforms, awards, personal items, memorabilia, and so much more!

“Entering a building which houses a museum named after me is a privilege I could never have anticipated. I hope its visitors will enjoy their stay there. After all, they are the ones who really built it.”

A Note From Jimmy Stewart

This letter from Jimmy Stewart was sent in honor of the grand opening of The Jimmy Stewart Museum on May 20, 1995. Stewart was unable to attend the opening but sent his twin daughters Kelly Harcourt and Judy Merrill on his behalf. They read this letter from Jimmy to the audience attending the dedication ceremony.
