When you read books or watch TV on serial killers, you get fascinated. Well, I do. But, to actually see photos or videos of death, it is unnerving. The museum was a collection of photos and videos with skulls and props. I think I'll stick to my books. For some reason, I really got uncomfortable and I thought I could... More

This place is awesome. So so so awesome, it's very confronting in some instances but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great for history buffs like myself. The staff were awesome as well, super friendly & welcoming! A must see.

We spent about 2 hours here reading through only a tiny portion of the thousands of documents they have here. They have put together the displays really well and if you do have an interest in forensic pathology, they have a great archive of cases. I would give 5 stars if not for the movie they show at the end... More

Being the macabre and dark person I am I had been wanting to visit for a long while. I was very excited for this part of the trip and I was not left disappointed. I should say you really have to like to look at things and enjoy learning. You should not go if you are easily offended or grossed... More

Full of pictures that you thought weren't available to anyone. 10 out of 10 for shock value if you're into that. We enjoyed reading the various documents that were on display. No photos allowed or food & drink, so drink up before you enter or leave them under reception desk like we did. Well worth a visit but take it... More

The museum is quite small with about 7 or 8 rooms. Most of it is very cluttered, it contains details of a few serial killers, newspaper cuttings black and white pictures of beheadings from 19th century china, as well as a film of a person being gored by a bull. There's pictures and details of an autopsy as well as... More

I can't add much to the other reviews. It isn't for the squeamish and maybe there should be an age guide, even allowing for the strap line that everyone dies. I enjoyed it and found it fascinating however, I did feel that the focus was on sensationalism and I would have preferred some more information and context, e.g. why is... More

Sorry but this just isn't for everyone. I don't enjoy autopsy photos or other grisly crime scene pics. If you're into that then maybe you might enjoy it. The staff were friendly though. One of my sons thought it was fun but the other bee-lined for the door as soon as he realized what kind of museum it was.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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 partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
