The museum tells the "Star is Born" story. Someone from a small town can make it in Hollywood. Hoosiers have been a part of Hollywood history from the very beginning to today. Some are stars but most of them are mentors. A friendly face you see in many films and TV shows. Hope to promote current Hoosiers in Hollywood and to keep the memory of past Hoosiers. The museum is located in Red Skelton's hometown of Vincennes, IN. Major goal to promote his career and to bring awareness to his talents.
