Restored to reflect its appearance in 1907, the year of Duke’s birth, his modest birth home is open for tours daily, as is the adjacent John Wayne Birthplace Museum. The only museum in the world dedicated to John Wayne, the museum houses an astounding collection of memorabilia from the screen legend's life and motion picture career, including original movie posters, film wardrobe, scripts, letters, artwork and sculpture, one of his customized automobiles and, of course, a movie theater.
