I was thinking about this museum for days after I went. Exhibits are really creepy,especially the serial killer artwork room, and the death photos. Also creepy are the eclectic group of visitors with you. Lots of goth enthusiasts, and people way to interested in the gory photos. All in all it is a unique experience. Had fun here

Out of all the museums we visited, I was really looking forward to this one. It sounded so different. First I will let you know I am not a person who advocates things about serial killers or merchants of death but we all have a strange fascination in why these people are who they are or in some cases were....

If you love talking about death, serial killers, have a strong stomach and have a dark sense of humor...this place is for you. The Museum of Death educates those who enter on what it means to die when it comes to where your spirit may or may not go and how your body is prepared for cremation or burial. The... More

I have a keen interest in horror, gore and serial killers so I was so excited to visit this museum. It was full of pictures, articles, artefacts and other odd objects. I'm really good with handling disturbing images and videos, but there was one room that was very confronting as you are surrounded by images of decapitated, crushed, bloody bodies,... More

It lives up to its name, it's pretty gory but it was good. I learned quite a bit in regards to a combination of different things I never had even thought to inform myself over, my friend and I came in later in the evening and the guy working was so kind and stayed late for us so we could... More

As with many small museums, this one seems to have emerged out of a personal obsession - here, focused on the dark, disorderly, and chaotic. The Museum of Death is a twisted intersection where sensationalism, the cult of celebrity and murder all meet. I loved certain exhibits (skull display, burial material, Day of the Dead, & Liberace's stuffed Persian cat)... More

The name says it all. Room 1 - Stories of serial killers, copies of police reports, newspaper cuttings. Room 2 - Death row killling devices, Chinese beheading photos Room 3 - Autopsies, videos, tools, burials Room 4 - Car accident photos, Mansen stories, suicide cults Room 5 - Cannibals, specimens, more gorey stuff. That's a quick overview, a whole lot... More

there's enough curiosity about this place, that you just have to see it to believe it. this is definitely a place that you would not take the kids. for those individuals who like the darker side of life, this would be right up your alley. i'm not a big person when it comes to things like this, but my wife...

Located right in the middle of Hollywood, the Museum of Death lives up to its name. It's a small space, with a handful of rooms dedicated to serial killers, dead celebrities, and other morbid features. The news clips and photos of actual murders were a lot to handle, and I felt anxious going through each room. The only area that... More

If you have a weak stomach do not visit. I found this place really interesting. I am not a morbid person. But learnt a thing or two in here.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
