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.

We took our grandkids aged 9 to the three linked attractions of which this was one. Typical Ripley's Believe It or Not fare. Too many of the i teractive buttons, etc were broken. I am sure there are better things to do in LA

My niece and I stepped in here to kill a little time, and it was interesting but not really any different than any other Ripley museum. My teenage niece did enjoy it, but neither of us really thought it was worth the price of admission. The employees, however, were very friendly and helpful.

Very interesting place and exhibits. Ripley sure did have an interesting life collecting oddities from around the world and this attraction exhibits some of them. A lot of the exhibits require some reading, but there are also some interactive ones. Enjoyed the last special effects room where you danced and it was projected on to a screen- very cool!

Our family had a great time here. We've got two little ones and everyone had fun. They've got online coupon codes which really helps bring down the price and kids 0-4 are free. You don't even need to print your tickets out since you can scan the barcode when entering the musuem.

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

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.
