This was a fun museum next to the Hollywood Bowl. Along with the photos of bowl history there were videos with music played thru earphones. Quite a pleasant surprise.

This is the place to see anything. I have been to the Hollywood Bowl several times over the years and I can tell you there is not a bad seat in the house. I recently saw James Taylor and he is perfection, but over the years I have seen Paul McCartney, John Williams with James Taylor (on the 4th of... More

Went to see Journey concert at the Hollywood Bowl with family, we had a lot of fun. Great venue to see any concert, had tickets for the back rows, but the sound was still amazing. Use $ 1.00 seat cushions. Read a lot about parking, stack parking at the venue or off site parking lots, Metro and so on, decided... More

I've been to the museum so many times and always enjoy it. I am not sure i would make a special trip here, but if you are attending a concert it is a great way to pass time and also to take in the history of the Bowl. Great artifacts from programs past (tickets, photos, and some fantastic videos from... More

The Hollywood Bowl is an awesome outdoor concert venue, but the museum is small. If you go to the Hollywood Bowl to take a tour, check out the museum. However, I wouldn't go just to see the Hollywood Bowl museum. Although interesting, there isn't much to see. If you are an LA history buff, you will love it!

We had already booked a week in Santa Monica from the UK when Black Sabbath announced this concert at the Hollywood Bowl - their first at the venue since 1972. Not a chance to be missed to tickets booked. Parking at the Bowl had some bad reviews including high prices and stacked parking - and on the evening it did... More

The Hollywood Bowl is such an awesome arena for live music. I just wish we could have seen a concert here. I can only imagine what the acoustics sound like. Walk around the grounds, walk up the steps and into the seating area, and check out the museum on-site.

This summer, there are approximately 9 separate days that were must sees for me and about 5 others that I was interested in. Great for townies and visitors alike. Parking is horrible because the congestion afterwards is a pain (park down in L.A (we use the VFW for $15.00) and walk up. They also have shuttles. Bring food (Picnic in... More
