Jamestown's National Comedy Center makes 'Most Noteworthy' list

Jan 10, 2018

Architectural Digest is out with its list of the "15 Most Noteworthy Museums Opening This Year" and the National Comedy Center in Jamestown is right there among much bigger names like Toronto and Scotland.

"From the first Scottish outpost of the Victoria & Albert museum, in Dundee, to the National Comedy Center in Jamestown, New York, there’s something for everyone," the magazine says.

Architectural Digest is an international authority on design. The National Comedy Center, which opens this fall, is the first nonprofit and national-scale visitor experience that celebrates the art of comedy.

The magazine applauds the museum's "over 50 immersive exhibits, as well as hologram performances from living and dead comedians. The more than 37,000 square feet of exhibit space will contain George Carlin’s archives and an adults-only “Blue Room,” which will explore the art form’s more mature subject matter and the history of cultural taboos."
