Loved this museum! It’s small and can probably be in and done within and hour. But it is beautiful, filled with info, and has some really fun stuff. The people were very kind and we really enjoyed it.

This is one of the best kept secrets in Burbank. It's an interesting place for even non-Martial Artists. On Saturday, May 30th, the museum honored Douglas Wong for his contributions to the World of Martial Arts.
