This building offered a lot of interesting history on the movie industry. Max Factor was the "make up king" and instrumental in providing the right hair color and skin tones for many actors including Lucille Ball and Marilyn Monroe!

This museum, inside the old Max Factor (a makeup guru for the stars) building, is very unassuming from the outside , but on the inside is amazing and chock full of artifacts from old Hollywood. Each floor is dedicated to a different theme, the first floor is an overview of old Hollywood with a ton of pictures as well as... More

I enjoyed the museum, but I actually was expecting more. I did learn a lot about Max Factor's influence on Hollywood celebs. We used our Go card to get in and was glad it was included on the pass.

As part of the Go Card (San Diego), we made a trip up to Hollywood for this museum. The museum is chock full of Hollywood Movie history. Many of the displays brought back memories of the past, so it was fun. I wasn't too fond of the Horror Movie section, but that's just me.

This museum is full of artifacts from TV and movie history. It is a fun museum to visit. Most interesting are the film clips about Max Factor and his role in developing cosmetics for, first, black and white movies and then for color. Who knew? He played a major role in determining, for example, what color hair was best for... More

… you are going for the Harry Potter exhibit. There are two costumes, a broom, and some wands. Not very much stuff there. On the other hand, there are a lot of old Hollywood history items to see. Much of it is from the very early days so it may not appeal to younger people. There are three stories and... More

It doesn't cost much to get in, but you can see some cool things. The bottom floor was my family's favorite, lots of horror memorabilia.

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.
