I have to start by saying I'd never have gone to this museum except that my teenage daughter picked it as the thing she really wanted to do on our trip. We read a handful of reviews online before going and there were some who mentioned they felt ill or passed out. I think I'm fairly average for tolerance and... More

An eccentric's extensive personal collection is on view for a reasonable fee, a little east of Hollywood and Vine. This isn't a high end, natural history museum, with slick, state-funded exhibits. It's a personal glimpse at an enormous, multi-room, obsession with this country's most troubling murderers, their real artifacts, and many other death industry souvenirs. It's an intriguing, if not... More

Well worth a visit and military discount given! Very informative, you could probably go back two or three times and still see new bits! So much to take in! don't go if you don't like gore..but then the clue is in the name! Would defiantly recommend!

I guess you need to have some interest or curiosity in Death/Murder/Suicide History to visit here.It was a bit of a walk from the hub of Hollywood Boulevard but worth it. Pretty basic premises a bit smelly(old items)but very interesting. The staff were really friendly & keen to answer any questions.

I found the Museum of Death absolutely fascinating and interesting. No, it's not the normal type of museum to visit whilst on holiday but I would recommend for anyone who is a little bit interested in this type of thing. The staff were also very friendly and advise prior to entering of the graphic nature of the content.

If you're interested in the stories and pictures of serial killers and celebrity murders and deaths, this is a place to check out. It's a ways down on Hollywood Blvd from the Walk of Fame but worth the extra effort to check out. The guy who works there is really cool!

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

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.
