I had an hour to wait for my bus and in passing I decided to enter this museum. I'm not really one for museums usually find them quite boring. BUT I was suprised at what I found inside. On the ground floor they had a marilyn Monroe section where they had her old dressing table and makeup. There was the... More

I wouldn't put this museum high on my list of things to do in the area. There were some interesting memorabilia items but there were way too many black and white photos without signatures as part of the display. I don't know if most of the outfits they had were originals or recreations as they were very careful about the... More

Visited the museum with my son and daughter. My son enjoyed the movie props and costumes. My daughter was in awe of the make rooms used by the stars such as Marlilyn Monroe. There is a video about Max Factor, it is a bit dated, but worth watching. It takes an hour or so to view everything it depends on... More

Unless you are into old films, but I am not, lucky I know a little. However, still I think the museum is interesting, they tried to put in some new and updated props used by various movies and stars. The basement, which is the creepy one, is really scary to me, but is the highlight of the place, because it... More

Visited this museum with my mum in early May. The tickets were only $15 each and gave access to the 4 levels that the museum is comprised of. The first floor you enter onto is an homage to Max Factor, one of the fathers of modern make up. I really enjoyed looking through the different rooms for blonds, brunettes, brownettes... More

Don't go expecting a polished, perfect, corporate experience. Do go with the feeling that you are visiting your elderly great aunt's basement, which is chock full of memorabilia that she has lovingly saved for decades hoping you will appreciate it too. The building itself is wonderful early 20th century architecture. If you love old Hollywood movies, vintage costumes, makeup and... More

This was the coolest adult adventure of the month. These displays, costumes, and the history of the building made the tour of the Hollywood Museum outstanding. This is not a kid adventure; if you're old enough to read, to remember 6-channel TV, you'll LOVE this place. There's Orphan Black and Walking Dead, there's Liz Taylor and Marilyn. This is the...

I absolutely LOVED this place! We visited here with our 3 young children who for the most part enjoyed the visit here too but it they were probably a little young for most of it. That said, they still enjoyed it! It's situated in the historical Max Factor building, in Hollywood. The Marilyn Monroe displays are the best I've seen,... More

Was really looking forward to this, but it turned out to be disappointing some of the displays sat askew in their cases some of the outfits were reproductions and the whole place had seen better days. I wouldn't put it on my to do list. not an A list attraction

Just went here with my family, immediate and extended. There were 7 of us in all and we all had great things to say about the place. I would make sure that you allow plenty of time. I could have stayed there a lot longer. Make sure to watch the movie about Max Factor and his influence on Hollywood. So... 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.
