Description

The non-profit National Comedy Center is the United States' official cultural institution, state-of-the-art museum and interactive visitor experience dedicated to presenting the vital story of comedy and preserving its heritage for future generations.

USA Today named the National Comedy Center the “Best New Museum in the Country” in 2020, TIME magazine selected it as one of its “World’s Greatest Places,” Condé Nast Traveler called it “One of the best museums in the country.” and People magazine named it one of “100 Reasons to Love America.” Visitors from all 50 states and nine countries have given the Comedy Center a rare 5/5 raring on TripAdvisor, ranking among the highest in the attraction and tourism industry.

The National Comedy Center's new LaughSafe health and safety program, developed in close consultation with health professionals and epidemiologists at UPMC Pittsburgh and UPMC Chautauqua, ensures a safe, worry-free and touch-free visitor experience.

Opened in August 2018 in Jamestown, New York, the National Comedy Center offers an unprecedented visitor experience using state-of-the-art technology, interactivity and personalization to create the first true 21st Century museum environment.

Based on the vision of Jamestown native Lucille Ball for her hometown to become a destination for comedy, the non-profit National Comedy Center showcases comedy’s great minds and unique voices in ways that engage, inspire, educate and entertain. Over 50 immersive exhibits within the 37,000-square-foot facility enable visitors to take a laugh-filled journey through comedy history, from early vaudeville to the latest viral memes.
