As we love the movies we decided to go there. They have a lot of interesting and great memorabilia, but it seems like they have not updated the museum in the last 20 years or so... any new memorabilia has just been squeezed in between the old stuff, making it very disorganised. Best part was for sure the basement with... More

I would thoroughly recommend this quirky museum. An interesting way to spend a few hours and in comparison to the other museums nearby, it is great value for money. We have teenage kids and it kept everyone interested. Lovely to see all the old Hollywood style. Well worth a visit.

It's not the biggest museum but it holds enough to keep you interested for an hour. The main points of interest for me were the Max Factor and Marilyn exhibits and my two teenage sons enjoyed the horror exhibition. It is largely a collection of memorabilia (photos etc) but there are also a few exhibits with some interesting context. There... More

There is little appealing in the area other than an interest in movies and tv - this will be of interest for those who believe in the history of the "golden days"

I went to the Hollywood Museum as I had purchased a Go Pass for LA, and it was one of the included attractions. It sounded interesting, however upon arriving the whole place felt very tired and dated. Even the most recent items (of which there were a lot!) just didn't really have the set up they deserve. The worst part... More

On November 27th I visited this museum around noon. The website said they were open until 5pm, but they closed early (just as I was leaving- whew!) at 2:30pm for a parade, so you might want to check with the museum ahead of time. The price was $15 for adults, but if you're a student you get a $3 discount.... More

The newest exhibit - Silence of the Lambs was great. We really liked this film. The rest of the museum was well worth seeing as well. Loads of hollywood history.

Close to all the attractions around the Chinese theatre and the walk of fame. The first floor is dedicated to makeup as the building used to be Max Factor. You'll get to see the beauty supplies of some famous actresses. There's a floor of costumes and Marilyn Monroe paraphernalia and a floor of horror film. It all seems really cool... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
