The scene along Hollywood Boulevard has always been a bit strange, but now, the entirely new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Hollywood Odditorium takes it to the next level of bizarre, amazing, unbelievable and downright fun. With a Colossal Emphasis on Tinseltown, Everything inside is new and unbelievable!The Hollywood Odditorium is open again after a temporary closure to give the show a major facelift – in true Hollywood fashion!Visitors to Ripley’s historic Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue attraction will be greeted by the iconic dinosaur on the roof, but inside they’ll find hundreds of new unbelievable exhibits – many of them hands on and interactive –all designed for family fun and entertainment! Celebrities take center stage here, including Brad Pitt, Jack Nicholson, Frank Sinatra, Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe – but in ways people have never seen. Guests will find celebrity creations carved from phone books, pasted from junk mail, created from candy and even a lifesized Arnold Schwarzenegger “Terminator” statue covered in dozens of three-dimensional scenes from some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. Eclectic may be the best word to describe the new collection of nearly 500 different exhibits – all unusual, all family-friendly. Most are one-of-a-kind items, like the actual flag a Chilean miner draped over his shoulder when he emerged from being trapped underground after 69 days, it’s signed by all 33 of the men who were rescued. Other unusual items include a 1975 FBI Wanted poster for Patty Hearst, 17th century dog armor, a purse made from soda cans and gallery after gallery of early, weird, rare and often bizarre Hollywood celebrity artifacts. “Our completely new show will absolutely knock our guest’s socks off!” said Andrea Silverman, manager of Ripley’s Believe It or Not Hollywood Odditorium. “We’ve assembled an unbelievable collection that people will never forget.”Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Hollywood is open 364 days a year, 10 a.m. to midnight. The Odditorium is located at 6780 Hollywood Blvd., and is only closed the day the Oscars are held across the street at the Kodak Theatre.

Did the VIP pass. It was a fun visit. Took about an hour to get through it. I'd do it again. I lived through the Berlin Wall collapse in high school. Seeing a large piece of that wall was very cool.

A great way to get out of the heat for a couple of hours and have some fun. See the height of the tallest man and film of the smallest. Even just going into the exhibits had some fun jokey stuff - won't say what cos that would be a spoiler! Put aside your adult and be a kid for... More

It's the first time I've been to this place and it was an awesome spot. Too bad it was almost closing time when we got in so we didn't get to roam around the place for long.

We were a group of three adults and two tweens. None of the exhibits were age appropriate for all groups, some were too loud for very small children, others like the shrunken heads and animal oddities too disturbing and grotesque. Many of the exhibits were very thread bare. Not a great use of over $20 per ticket. Better to go... More

For 20 dollars this place has plenty to offer. Most exhibits are unique e.g. genuine shrunken human heads and there are many. The tour is interactive and is loads of fun too. Highly recommended.

This museum has a lot of different exhibits so everyone can find something to enjoy. They are reasonably priced and have interactive exhibits featuring everything from Monroe to Star Wars. They offer a discount if you buy tickets to the wax museum too.

Lots to see and read. Very interesting. many things inside were not what I would call "unbelievable". It is a fun activity to do and I would recommend it.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
