This museum is full of artifacts from TV and movie history. It is a fun museum to visit. Most interesting are the film clips about Max Factor and his role in developing cosmetics for, first, black and white movies and then for color. Who knew?...More

… you are going for the Harry Potter exhibit. There are two costumes, a broom, and some wands. Not very much stuff there. On the other hand, there are a lot of old Hollywood history items to see. Much of it is from the very...More

It doesn't cost much to get in, but you can see some cool things. The bottom floor was my family's favorite, lots of horror memorabilia.

I was so excited to see this museum but, the articles I read weren't clear on the days closed. It is not that great from the outside and looks run down. Cute Mel's dinner next door.

A lot of really cool original artifacts. Some that are one of a kind treasures like The Wizard of Oz ruby slippers and a lot more. Well worth the money!

Really didn't expect much with this place as it's quite cheap, but boy it was fantastic. Very relaxed atmosphere and not crowded. Definitely worth a visit. Another big plus was the staff just leave you be without hassling you like on other tours in Hollywood....More

My favorite part of the whole museum was the Hannibal Lector section. It feels like you are walking down the hallway to his cell. If only they had a wax figure of him in there. They even had a padded room. It was awesome and...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
