“Hollywood Museum, Hollywood, CA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This museum has an outstanding collection of movie star memorabilia from the 30's to present time - there are four floors full of extremely interesting displays featuring movies and the great stars from the "golden age of movies" - This museum definitely has the best collection of movie memorabilia for movie buffs like myself - it is housed in the original Max Factor Building where the stars used to go for make up -- some of the original star private rooms are still intact and contain original possessions that were there when the stars used the Max Factor building - this museum is definitely worth the trip to see all the displays, and people need to plan enough time to enjoy all four floors of memorabilia. I highly recommend taking a trip down memory lane for the greatest movies in history and seeing this museum. It is the one museum you don't want to miss if you love Hollywood history and the great movies.

“A step back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Lots of great old memorabilia from Marilyn Monroe, Loretta Young, and Lucille Ball. When I was there, they had an exhibit of photos showing many of the stars when they received their Star on Hollywood Blvd. Very cool.

the museum is based on really old hollywood movies, which isn't my type of thing
building looks very old
the only interesting thing was the hannibal cell

“OK but rather run-down and no focus.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

This used to be the Max Factor building and museum, but the exhibits now inside seem to ramble. Lot of hommage to Marilyn and a chamber of horrors (for some reason).
