This is not your every day museum. We were just going for a walk and found this. I love true story's and love the crime ones so this was very interesting. I would not take kids. Great to do smoking different.

Not for the faint of heart. A lot of the displays are pictures and articles which can be viewed on the web. Not worth the price of admission.

Not for the weak of heart! This self guided tour is aimed to entertain for 45 minutes. We ended up staying for close to two hours! There's so much to look at and read. I found myself walking through the same hallways and rediscovering new pieces and bits of information. Photos can be graphic, but you are warned. Will definitely... More

I think this place is definitely worth at least one visit. It's been a couple of years, but if the museum of death remotely piques your interest than you're in for a treat. There's something about death when looking at it in the abstract. It's morbid, it's gory, it's interesting. Spent most of my time in the large room displaying... More

Its located at the end of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The small staff is very friendly and check on you to make sure youre ok... More

This museum consists of one man's curious collection of items related to death, dying, and murder most foul. Here, you can expect rooms of serial killer art, clothing from those executed on Death Row, newspaper clippings on mysterious deaths, a room full of morticians' equipment, rooms dedicated to various death cults (including Heaven's Gate and the Manson Family), old PSA's...

I had seen an article online about neat places to visit in the LA area, and since it was on the way to our main destination, my best friend and I decided to detour a bit to check it out. We weren't sure what to expect as there are not many photos of the inside due to them not being... More

Spent about an hour here, found it interesting but some stuff freaked me out a bit. The place feels quite eerie when walking around too.

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!
