This beloved in Hollywood is for the overall experience, rather than listening to good music. The acoustics aren't good and if you're driving there add another hour at least to your experience time. Walk or get a car service.

Parking!!! We knew about the stacked parking so we did the park and ride at Hollywood and highland. Park further away! It still took us two hours to get out of that mess on a Friday night Halloween weekend. The event was amazing, we saw the nightmare before Christmas to a live orchestra. We were literally in the last row... More

THIS PAGE IS SUPPOSE TO BE REVIEWS OF THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL MUSEUM, NOT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL IN GENERAL. That said I made a special stop here just to see the museum. There is really nothing to see. It is very small with a very few displays and I was there about 15 minutes and saw everything. The upstairs had virtually... More

The Hollywood Bowl has been on my list for many years. It has been in so many films, television shows and photos. It is huge and the particular concert was a must-see, sold-out show.

Went in the 13th October to see van Morrison and tom jones in concert. Fabulous venue. Paid for better seats and this was worth it. Parking very difficult and park and ride fully booked. Ended up getting Uber car to get us there. Bit of a walk to get into the bowl. Take something warm to wear as it is... More

Came here to watch Nightmare before christmas with the actors singing there lines from the movie. Awesome experience would like to come back here again to see another event take place here. Great place for a date night or family time.

if you are a fan of the Bowl, seeing its historical development could be of interest. It was for me. it is relatively small but then again devoted to one singular venue. Tour guide knew her stuff

Many people on this page are rating the Hollywood Bowl and not the Hollywood Museum. You cannot compare the two venues. The Bowl is outstanding. The museum is small. There were some interesting and interactive displays, but not many. The gift shop was tiny, too. I'm glad to have seen the museum, but I have no reason to return.

This is one place in our fair city that is totally worth attending. It almost doesn't matter who is performing. The outdoor experience of a picnic dinner and wine under the stars is extraordinary!

We saw the Nightmare Before Christmas and loved the setting and the performance. Since we visited from out of town and stayed at at hotel here are some tips we found handy from experience. Arriving: we stayed in Beverly Hills and used a car sharing service. Our fee was only $13 and well worth getting dropped off near the entrance.... More
