Just a real change from the hustle and bustle of LA. I was on the Dearly Departed tour(highly recommend) so had a map of who was where. This is no where near the size of Hollywood Forever but still a fair amount of walking. Wear comfortable walking shoes, sunhat, sunglasses and a full water bottle. Really a chance to understand...

We stopped at this cemetery while on a tour for 20 minutes. In that short time I managed to see and take pictures of about 15 celebrity grave sites including Marilyn Monroe and Natalie Wood. There are so many more in such a small area. I could have easily spent an hour here. Hard to find as it is behind... More

a must see for all Marilyn Monroe fans. Nice and quiet place where you can pay respects to one of the biggest Hollywood icons.

We went here to pay our respects to Roy and Barbara Orbison. Also saw Marilyn's and Peggy Lee's memorials. Nice and peaceful, well-kept place to wander amongst the musicians and filmstars for an hour or two.

I wanted to visit Marilyn Monroes grave while in L.A. Although the entrance to the cemetary is not easy to find once inside I found what I came for. We were the only ones there that day. It was interesting to also pass other Hollywood legends buried nearby. It did not disappoint.

I am a die hard Marilyn Monroe fan. I was very pleased to visit her gravesite at Westwood memorial. This place is well kept and the staff was very helpful directing me to MM gravesite. They also shared other famous people buried at this location and showed where they were buried.

If you are into your star spotting then this is the place. Lots of stars from the bygone are laid to rest here. It is a peaceful place and not overrun by the media. Famous of all is Marilyn Munroe.

The best way to do Pierce Brothers is to first go to their website and look at the surprising number of well known names you will recognize. You will see far more in your visit this way and be reminded of some you don't want to miss. Allow a couple of hours and take your time.

Went on the dearly departed tour and they brought us here. They gave us facts as to why Marilyn Monroe's marble tombstone has turned pinkish and who owns the the empty spot next to her. The tombstones of many have quirky quotes and they plots are uniquely decorated. These plots are not cheap either, they cost in the 6 digit... More

It's a crazy thought that there I was, all alone with my partber, having our own private time with people like Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, and Farrah Fawcett. Such a peaceful place tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Unique experience at no cost.
