Interesting, and not to be taken lightly...It's a whole lot of death in one building

If you spend the time reading all the signs and learning about the exhibits then it's worth the money. If you skip through without stopping to read, then it would be over pretty quickly. Some rather gruesome photos and exhibits - but I guess that's...More

As someone who is into all things creepy or weird, the Museum of Death was a must-visit for me when we went to LA. It's exactly what you'd expect plus a lot more. They have anything you could think of related to death and dying...More

If your into this sort of thing, its pretty cool. It is not for the faint of heart and 100% is not for children. Its very large, someone could easily spend hours reading and looking at everything inside. Bring cash to pay or they will...More

Had I actually known what was in the museum I wouldn’t have gone. I thought it would mainly have items related to killers, but not the victims. I found the serial killer rooms fascinating...all the letters and drawings made by the most notorious killers out...More

This place is essentially a massive private collection of photos, newspaper clippings and artefacts relating to murders. It includes a lot of very confronting photos of bloodied/damaged dead bodies at murder scenes, miscarried foetuses in jars, coffins and plenty of items belonging to serial killers....More

Ok, so I have been contemplating how to properly review the museum. It is truly a 'one of a kind' experience... not to be taken lightly, or for those squeamish, or sensitive to the whole subject of death. This is NOT a house of horrors...More

Off the bat it’s not for everyone. It’s a very particular, very niche kind of material. But it is very interesting, they have a lot of material, a lot of really exclusive, special things. If you are in any way interested in creepy, horror, scary...More

I wouldn't recommend this museum as part of Los Angeles tour, there are far more interesting places. Besides, there are a lot of homeless people in this neighborhood. However if you feel stuck or very upset with your life, you can go here to get...More

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
