Having seen all my favourite TV casts do PaleyFest I just had to go in and have a look around. There was a big South Park exhibit which looked amazing but as I've never seen the show it didn't really mean anything to me.

Outlander has grown since last June 2015 when a few costumes were on display at The Grove. This was a detailed exhibit of the favorite costumes. They could be examined closely to see the detailed work. Simply amazing that this much detail when into a TV series. It shows how much Ron D. Moore, Terry Dresbach, and Maril Davis AND... More

If you hate shopping and you're visiting Rodeo Drive someone who loves it, you could do worse than begging off to visit the Paley. It's small, room for one major exhibit. It was costumes and set design from the Outlander TV show when I visited. But the real treasure here is the searchable Broadcast archive. You could spend hours in... More

The special exhibit of costumes from the TV show Outlander is spectacular. Seeing the detail on the clothes was a rare treat. You thought they were pretty on TV! Just wait till you see them up close! They also have a lot of footage of various scenes, plus filmed footage of the cast members being interviewed. This event is a... More

We were visiting LA for 1 day and when I found out there was an Outlander Exhibit here, I had to see it. Admission is free but they suggest a donation. There was also a Shark VR exhibit happening at the same time. You look through the Samsung Gear at videos of sharks so while I was enjoying the Outlander... More

There's a Paley Center for Media in New York City too. This is a great place to get immersed in the world of media. You will need a few hours to really enjoy all the services available here. Sometimes they host events here too.

This modern building houses an amazing collection of television and radio programs (160,000+) going back to the 1940's and current popular shows. Historical moments reported on television such as Walter Cronkite's announcement of Kennedy's assassination can be viewed in your own module. In the month of February 2016 there is an exhibit of winning Doritos commercials from videos submitted by... More

Headed to Paley Center not knowing what to expect, and it was a very well-kept interesting space. There were no special exhibits at the time, one had just concluded in the main hall, and there was a Doritos exhibit in conjunction with Super Bowl (commercials.) Large collection of caricatures, and sat for a time at the media archive, which was... More

We came to the Paley Center at the end of our vacation due to the amazing experience we had two years ago with the Warner Brothers exhibit. This exhibit was exiting had a lot of different costumes, sets, and artifacts. It also was very involved and expansive, and it was one of the best things we did all vacation. However,... More

The museum is the largest archive of television in the world. The draw is that you can search the catalogue and find and listen to your favorites from years past. You can hear or watch the Jack Benny shows, and all the other greats of TV We went this time for one of their new exhibits which was about typewriters.... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
