Yes! Go here!

Found this gem when looking for something to do on a rainy day. Oh my goodness! This was such a fabulous find! We spent over three hours here and only left because they were closing. I highly recommend this museum!
Go to Jamestown and have a laugh.

I'm not sure what reason you would visit Jamestown NY except to go to the Lucy and Desi Museum and the National Comedy Center. Are they worth the trip? ABSOLUTELY. This is a hands-on, interactive museum for adults. Who wouldn't want to see themselves on the bonbon wrapping line from I Love Lucy? You enter a bunch of likes (of TV shows, movies, etc.) as you enter and then as you go through the center, your likes are catered to in certain presentations once you tap in. Plenty to do for a couple hours and there is a large gift shop, but disappointing cafe (basically grab and go with minimal selection). And don't forget to go the Lucy and Desi Museum, as you can get combined admission to both.
