The museum at the Bowl is a nice diversion but nothing to write home about. The real draw is seeing the empty amphitheater in the daytime - it's really quite lovely. Take a picnic and sit in the relative emptiness and get the hell out of there before the crowds descend.

The Hollywood Bowl is the BEST venue for outdoor music entertainment. There are so many music choices to attend here. Pack a lunch, bring your own alcohol, and arrive early before the concert begins and you have the perfect setting for crowds or a date. So many five star entertainers have played on their stage. Plenty of parking but arrive... More

I've been coming to the Bowl for over thirty years, and never has a disappointment. Now that I'm a member and buy season tickets, I don't see how could people live without coming to the hollywood bowl. The prices have gone up over the years, but memories you make here are priceless.

Getting to the bowl is a challenge but once there the performances are varied and quite good. The bench seats are very uncomfortable but you can rent a cushion for $1. The large screens scattered around are great as you can get a glimpse of what's happening on the stage even if you're sitting very far away. The boxes are... More

We visited the museum during the day and had the opportunity to explore the Hollywood bowl as well. We enjoyed all the photos, films, info sharing the history behind the bowl, along with its ups and downs through the years. It was fun to actually get out and explore the Hollywood bowl and get an idea of the immense size... More

This is probably the best concert venue I've ever been to. The sound is incredible and there really isn't a bad seat in the house.

Wonderful place to enjoy music outdoors in our Southern California climate. Good but pricey food options. Allowed to bring your own picnic to enjoy prior to event. I highly recommend you purchase shuttle transportation to avoid driving as leaving the venue can take a great deal of time.
