Went here on a recommendation from an employee at Amoeba records. Very interesting place and never would have thought about this topic being a museum. They cover it all (murder, suicide, autopsies, burial...) Plenty of warning that this is not a Disney fun place, but truly a museum about the topic of death and it's history. Honestly a very interesting... More

It's not big, but not as small as some other reviews would imply. There are a number of graphic images, but they're pretty upfront about that, so it should be no surprise. Take the time to read the information provided about each station - some of it is disturbing, yes, but also fascinating and well, that's kind of the point.... More

OK, so I got that it was going to be gory and somewhat morbid, but I think I was expecting a bit more fun to go with it, perhaps like the London Dungeon. This is just a collection of artifacts that mostly consists of extremely gruesome photographs of real dead bodies, along with items such as letters written by serial... More

15 dollars is a little bit overprised for a museum that is quite small and full of photos of serial killer and their victim that you can see on internet not impressed

For anyone who's never spent hours scouring the internet for the most disturbing images and topics out there, this is a perfect introduction into the world of death, torture, and suffering. I personally found this to be more of a review than a place for new discoveries, but the collection has obviously been curated by people who really care about... More

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.

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.
