Mixed bag here, but a lot of really iconic and historic exhibits are here. They also have special showings....definitely worth it, and MUCH better than Guinness or Ripley's. check it out if you are any measure of a movie fan.

The building itself is historic, the Max Factor building is where he and his staff made Hollywood stars shine. The building now houses a fantastic collection of Hollywood history. I do not like museums generally, but spent over 2 hours here, and would go again....More

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.
