It is not a big museum and very compact. The exhibition is impressive and has a lot of contents. I found it quite interesting but did feel some of the crime/accident scene photos would qualify as graphic image (CSI or other crime shows are nothing in comparison) so wouldn't recommend taking kids or for someone squeamish. Depending on how closely... More

It truly is a fascinating museum. Of course it's about serial killers, death and all things macabre, so unless you're sure you can stomach it (for somethings really are quite gross) I wouldn't go. That being said, the staff was amazing and actually would occasionally check up on everyone and go through the rooms just to make sure everyone was... More

We came here in June but I've just thought to review now. Absolutely incredible experience, but definitely not for the faint hearted. I love a bit of gore and even I walked out feeling a little queezy. Incredible collection of true crimes/murders, executions, correspondence with convicted killers.... the list goes on but I won't give it away. Please visit this... More

This place is fantastic! Not for the faint hearted, it contains some very heavy stuff. It takes a while to get around, which I liked because so often you pay for museums which you can get around in half an hour.

Pros: The museum was definitely interesting and it had every death-related information in there. It also has free parking. (Admission is $15) Cons: I'm pretty sensitive when it comes to seeing bloody and gruesome photos of real murder scenes and fatal accidents, so I felt pretty dizzy and faint at one point. Before you decide to go, keep in mind... More

Before you say "Yeah right.." and roll your eyes. Read further. The museum was created to show you a new perspective on life itself. Yes, the pictures are gruesome and yes it's not for everyone. But when you leave this place, you'll be reminded that life is precious and easily lost. They go deep in the meaning of death itself.... More

I loved this museum. It's bizarre, it's confronting, but it is meticulous in what has been collected and is absolutely fascinating. I am really surprised by the comments about a lot of the images/stories being available on the internet. Yes, there is a lot of information alongside the exhibits, but to look at every artefact alone would take several hours.... More

Came here on a Saturday afternoon with the wife. Free parking to the east of the museum, always great. $15 per person for about a 1 hour self guided tour. Lots of interesting articles to read and photos to look at it. Interesting perspective at death and those who commit it (serial killers). Got a bit crowded in the small... More

Wasn't really sure what to expect when we stopped there. Although our family is glad we stopped, it is not something for someone with a weak stomach. It's a museum of DEATH.....obviously there will be many things displayed of a graphic nature.

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

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.
