First thing you should do when you enter the museum is go to the flower shop and buy the map for $5.00. We didn't and just drove around and then plopped ourselves down and walked around and saw lots of graves that we were interested...More

Although some of the grave stones are interesting, all together it looks messy, it lacks any taste and solemnity. For me it was disappointment.

Nice old cemetery. Very peaceful. We drove it with the map. Don't be cheap. Buy the $5 map. Much more difficult to find stars without. Streets are narrow with lots of cars so be prepared to drive slow. Judy Garland was tucked away in her...More

There is a lot of history at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. It is a good place to visit to see who of Hollywood fame is laying in rest here. In the summertime, they have a movie night and that is a fun night for sure.

Check out this final resting place for many known and lesser known celebs. Summer movies here are a blast. You may walk around unguided and be surprised. I enjoyed a tour with friends while visiting a family grave site.

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

We didn’t take the tour. You can get a guidebook at the flower shop near the entrance and do your own. That’s what we did. Sorry for the confusion.

There is no need for a tour. You can just walk at your own pace. You can do some research online at their website.
