“Good Nostalgic Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The Paley Center is well worth the time and entry fee to spend an hour our two remembering some of the Radio and TV shows of the past. Nice layout and good presentation of information and memorabilia.

“Unexpected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We spent an amazing afternoon at the Paley Center in L.A. recently. The Television Out of the Box Exhibit was fascinating and remarkably interactive. The security staff there encouraged us to experience everything fully and even offered to take our pictures. The historical background to the industry was amazing, and the documentation they had there was incredible. We were also the only two people in the theater (on a weekend!) that was showing the greatest interviews in television history. Absolutely fascinating, very reasonably priced (especially compared with so many other tourist attractions) and right next to Rodeo Drive, this is well worth the trip. Plus they have a fabulous gift shop for tv memorabilia.

“You Could Spend Days Here!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Right now they have a wonderful "Think Outside the Box" exhibit by Warner Brothers in addition to their viewing studios. Here, you can see any television show you want to see (ever!!!). You could literally spend days here... If I lived in LA, I would have a permanent membership to this center just to view the old television shows! What a wonderful place....
