New Exhibit! Another Wonderful Life: the Art of Mary Stewart

Jimmy Stewart’s sister Mary was an award winning artist. We have the honor of highlighting her impressive career at the museum. This exhibit showcases Mary Stewart’s early sketches, drawings, posters, portraits, paintings and cartoons. Interwoven throughout the exhibit are family stories and photos. Experience her WWII posters, Susie cartoons, ashcan art, delicate portraits and so much more! This exhibit is on display through the end of August 2023.


Special Events

Special events include new rotating exhibits in our hallways and special featured displays. We celebrate Jimmy Stewart’s birthday at the end of May every year with a weekend full of events. We also have celebrity events/shows from time to time as well as our Harvey Award dinners/weekends.

At the Holidays

At The Holidays the museum does it right! There is a special It’s A Wonderful Life exhibit with movie posters, photos, memorabilia and behind the scenes movie facts. We also feature life-size movie cutouts for photo ops, It’s A Wonderful Life village and a miniature Granville house from the movie. Interspersed throughout the museum is also a Festival of Trees. Over 10 Christmas trees are on display that are decorated based on Jimmy Stewart’s life and films. Be sure to visit The Shop Around the Corner gift shop that has unique holiday items that make for great gifts! And of course, we show the movie It’s A Wonderful Life in our theater every day at 1 pm throughout the holiday season!
