He also played the accordian and served in the service.  Most  people don’t know that Jimmy also wrote poetry, some of which was published.

You’ll see modern art of his work and old awards that actually started back when he was in the Boy Scouts.

Stewart made a total of 81 Featured Films during his career. As you browse through the museum you’ll see original movie posters and photos that start from the 1930s.
