Owner description: 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.

We visited RBION during our 24 hour stop over in LA. It was a fun way to kill some time and as we were first through the door around 10:30am (opening times aren't as punctual as the website suggests) we had the place to ourselves. The rest rooms were clean and pleasant - which is always a relief! The exhibits... More

I was expecting more out of this museum. It has some interesting things to see but not worth going out of your way to see. There is a lot of marylin monroe stuff there which is really cool for any marlyin fan.

While not as large as many of the other Ripley's, this location, right on Hollywood Blvd., offers just as good of an experience as any of the other, larger attractions. They have a shrunken head, torture and humiliation devices, creatures with too many legs and heads, and other weirdness that one comes to expect in such a place. PLUS, being... More

It was cool, but the Ripley's in NYC is much longer and bigger, but it as a small price. You get what you pay for.

Most interactive museum I've ever experienced, and most fun. Full of fascinating displays complete with explanations (like a short video on how shrunken heads were made). Lots of amazing things you'll never see anywhere else, with several jokes along the way ;-)

It is always fun to go to Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum. The one in Hollywood is close to the Hollywood and Highland area, which is also a good place to park, as the underground garage is huge. The different exhibits are interesting to read about.
