This stop on our way home was worth the time to stop and enjoy the life of Lucille Ball and Dezi Arnaz. Take your time to visit both studios and to walk downtown to see the different murals.

I was a big fan of I love Lucy. The museum had a lot of memorabilia and reconstructions of the sets. It also showed a lot of Desi's musical career which was extensive.
