I went on an extra afternoon I had. The people were wonderful and extremely nice. The Museum had lots of interesting stuff, however was not quite what I was expecting. From what I had seen in advertisements I thought there would be more exhibits directly...More

My wife and enjoyed visiting this museum housed in the old Max Factor building. The Art Deco architecture is interesting to see in its own right. There's a haphazard arrangement to the presentation of movie and TV memorabilia, and the museum could use a little...More

The Hollywood Museum is a hidden gem and must-see. Where else can you stand in the very room where Max Factor dyed Marilyn Monroe's hair blonde? Besides that, there is so much memorabilia here that you will not be disappointed in the visit. Enjoy!

The building itself could be considered a museum, which adds to the charm. It covers most all genres and time periods of Hollywood movie history. For less than $15 a person, it's worth it.

This was one of our highlights in Hollywood. Not for the whizz bang lovers, but for those who are prepared to look closely, and stop and feel, this really is the closet you may get to such stars as Marilyn Monroe and Joan Crawford. This...More

What a lovely place, lots of Hollywood memorabilia - Silence of the Lambs Hannibal Lecture prison cell set was amazing and my personal preference - $15 entrance is well worth it !

A fun stop for tourists but you won't catch any locals in there. The museum is said to be haunted! woooooooooooo......

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

I ended up spending about three hours here. It depends on your interests. I will say this much: This museum is very informative, and it is unique--unlike those other "museums" along Hollywood Blvd.
