definitely not for everyone as many others on here have said. Gross, morbid and creepy photos and descriptions. the video of embalming was enthralling yet disgusting thinking of your loved ones going through that process. being a nurse and having seen my share of dead people, I was still taken aback by some of the photos. still in all, you...

a little creepy, but something different to do in while in Los Angeles plus they have a two headed turtle!

Definitely not for everyone. Was very morbid and graphic, but very interesting and informative! And there are Siamese turtles and a dog to make you smile again when leaving!

We knew going in that this was not for the squeamish.... So we were prepared. There's so much information and tons of things to look at. I loved learning about the Heaven's Gate mass suicide. There were lots of videos I would have loved to watch all the way through but it was a busy day today. You can tell... More

This museum is definitely not for everyone, but I knew I had to visit because old Hollywood crime interests me. And my best friend is kind of spooky, so I knew she'd want a souvenir. Paying money to gawk at original artwork by John Wayne Gacy made me pretty uneasy, but I did it, so who am I to judge?... More

The curators here obviously took a lot of thought into organizing these collections into an interesting and informative way. The collection is brimming with photos, ephemera, and objects such as coffins (showing different coffin types), skulls, and a wide variety of odd objects. There is a lot of stuff about serial killers and murders in general (Charles Manson, a local... More

A very unusual museum I have ever been to. I was very impressed with all the details and how very well planned it was. The owner's have painstakingly created this museum and you can see it from all the items they have gathered. Beware that there is a lot of gory materials and images and is not for the faint... More

I didn't really know what to expect when we went to the Museum of Death. I had read about it online and knew it was definitely somewhere I wanted to check out because I've always found serial killers and historic murders fascinatingly disturbing. When we arrived I liked the environment off right off the bat it wasn't fancy, there was... More

Quite a collection of older and more recent crime photos, info, videos, death artifacts...just frankly too much to list. It's not for everyone, but it is part of life so to speak. Some of the images here are the type you can see on rotten dot com but there are so many interesting collectibles I had no idea existed. The... More

The museum has different rooms which explore death in all forms. Letters from serial killers. Video clips on mortuary science,historical photos of different methods of execution. A room is dedicated to the deeds of the Manson clan and un solved murder of The Black Dahlia. . There are autopsy photos of JFK and a grisly, black faced Marilyn Monroe There... More
