This is a REAL cemetery that is STILL a tourist attraction. Some of the truly greats of Classic Hollywood are laid to rest here. PLEASE SHOW RESPECT! This is a beautiful cemetery hidden right in the middle of the city. We did experience the trouble that everyone else has initially finding this hidden treasure. We went into the library, walked...

As long as you are respectful of your surroundings, and you enjoy the macabre, this is a great place to see some famous grave sites. Small and compact.

Thus is not a place that gives tours or refreshments. It's a very real cemetery and you need to show some bonafide respect should you visit. It's a hidden jewel behind the Wilshire Boulevard highrises. But if you are a Hollywood history buff, it's a beautiful landscape and home to many film and TV legends. Favorite is Merv Griffin's headstone:... More

Such a beautiful cemetery!! I recommend stopping - it only took us about an hour and we saw where so many famous people were buried. Very neat if you enjoy that kind of thing!

This place was on my bucket list and not very easy to find. Luckily is just happened to be a block away from the bus stop and it is hidden behind a carpark and some tall office buildings. It is like a small oasis and there are no crowds. Within a couple of minutes, we found Marilyn Monroe and Truman... More

I had to look for this twice but when i found it, wow what a gem. Hard to find a lot of the names you may be looking for - testament to how unobtrusive and "ordinary" this place is. A quiet oasis in the heart of the city.

Yes it is tricky to find, with tall buildings surrounding the location. One short block South West from the corner of Wilshire Blvd and Glendon Ave. The Hammer Museum is the exact opposite direction from that intersection. There are small signs the size of "No Parking" signs that say Pierce Brothers, good luck spotting them. Access by an alley from... More
