Description: The scene along Hollywood Boulevard has always been a bit strange, but...
The scene along Hollywood Boulevard has always been a bit strange, but now, the entirely new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Hollywood Odditorium takes it to the next level of bizarre, amazing, unbelievable and downright fun. With a Colossal Emphasis on Tinseltown, Everything inside is new and unbelievable!The Hollywood Odditorium is open again after a temporary closure to give the show a major facelift – in true Hollywood fashion!Visitors to Ripley’s historic Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue attraction will be greeted by the iconic dinosaur on the roof, but inside they’ll find hundreds of new unbelievable exhibits – many of them hands on and interactive –all designed for family fun and entertainment! Celebrities take center stage here, including Brad Pitt, Jack Nicholson, Frank Sinatra, Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe – but in ways people have never seen. Guests will find celebrity creations carved from phone books, pasted from junk mail, created from candy and even a lifesized Arnold Schwarzenegger “Terminator” statue covered in dozens of three-dimensional scenes from some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. Eclectic may be the best word to describe the new collection of nearly 500 different exhibits – all unusual, all family-friendly. Most are one-of-a-kind items, like the actual flag a Chilean miner draped over his shoulder when he emerged from being trapped underground after 69 days, it’s signed by all 33 of the men who were rescued. Other unusual items include a 1975 FBI Wanted poster for Patty Hearst, 17th century dog armor, a purse made from soda cans and gallery after gallery of early, weird, rare and often bizarre Hollywood celebrity artifacts. “Our completely new show will absolutely knock our guest’s socks off!” said Andrea Silverman, manager of Ripley’s Believe It or Not Hollywood Odditorium. “We’ve assembled an unbelievable collection that people will never forget.”Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Hollywood is open 364 days a year, 10 a.m. to midnight. The Odditorium is located at 6780 Hollywood Blvd., and is only closed the day the Oscars are held across the street at the Kodak Theatre.

I was pleasantly surprised with this Ripleys. I have a childhood memory of visiting a Ripleys in the 80s that was not good. Even with that in my head, I agreed with my children to go. We purchased the VIP package (gets you into Ripleys, Wax Museum and World Record museum) and I thought Ripleys was the best one. If... More

My wife and I had just finished a tour of LA and were on Hollywood Blvd. and she wanted to see Ripley’s Believe It or Not. I didn’t particularly want to but she wanted to. We inquired about the ticket prices and found out you can enter and get 2 other very nearby attractions for 30 dollars each. I figured... More

We took our 10 1/2 and 7 1/2 year old grandsons and had a great time. The guy working in the front was very, very nice and friendly. He encouraged people to come in and take photos and look around. The kids found the museum fascinating. We spent about an hour or so in there and could have spent more... More

I went there and even before we walked in the manager was out talking to us, and being friendly. They were so nice and welcoming and really made it a great experience. After going inside, we saw so many neat things. It was definitely worth going because it puts some of these people, creations, artifacts, etc. into perspective and it... More

We learned some things and that made it fun. There is something interesting for everyone. On the bottom floor as you walk into the exhibit, by the one-eyed lamb is a place for children to crawl in and stand up to be an exhibit, too. I enjoyed myself more than I thought I would. It was great to go in... More

I visited Ripley's a while back, forgot to review. I don't think that it was really amazing, but definitely interesting. Kind of like and 8 out of 10. Basically, it's enjoyable, just don't expect to come out of there saying "WOW".

I thank you for the 8/10, and would love to work toward the 10/10. We try to bring the weirdest, most unusual things from around the world: unusual art, human body parts, and a vampire killing kit all represent but a few of our collected curioddities. Thanks for coming! More

I really wasn't too keen on going in as this was not on my top things to do list however once inside I was surprised at how interesting weird things could be. Hopefully one day when we come back with the grandchildren we can take them here as I am sure they will enjoy it as much as we did.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood 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.
