Definitely not your average museum for the whole family. This is more geared to adults. The staff were excellent and helpful throughout the visit and as well arranged a taxi to pick us up. Interesting to learn about all the crazy killers in North America at this unique collection of artifacts, art, letters and collectibles from murderers and mass murderers.... More

Fantastic staff, amazing collection, and just long enough without being overwhelming or boring. Fun and creepy place to spend an hour or two!

This is a weird one. Artifacts from serial killers, mortuary photos... if you have a fascination for such stuff, you'll enjoy. I got as far as the concentration camp room before calling it a day. NOT for children. Or sensitive types . Or really ANYONE unless you have a morbid fascination for the remnants of generally sick, insane people or... More

The museum is what we expected crazy, truthful and parts are graphic and gory... Amazing. The staff was helpful. The souvenir room was a lil small but lots of cool stuff and clothes.

Took my grandkids, 13 and 16. It was awesome. I think you have to be into this type of stuff though. It's not a regular museum. They have videos of a mortician preparing a body, serial killer art, autopsy photos, a taxidermist room, celebrity deaths, etc. Anything to do with death is here. Everything is very graphic. If you are... More

A meticulous collection of all things death related, yes a lot of this information can be found on the internet but it's not the kind of stuff I would ever look up. I especially enjoyed the cannibalism section, the photo of a tribeswoman chomping on a severed leg urghhh! Having recently lost my father, there were a couple of moments... More

This place is not for the faint of heart! It is an interesting walk-though which shows a huge range of objects which were owned or used by very famous serial killers! It also contains very gruesome pictures of crime scene which are not for everyone. Was very good source of information on the killers so found it interesting! Would recommend... More

I am fascinated by serial killers and this museum was one of the most interesting exhibits I have ever seen. They feature photos of crime scenes that you cannot often find and all around intriguing information set up in a nice walking tour through a spooky building. I would definitely go again!

The Museum of Death was not something I had heard of before I looked up things to do in Hollywood. It is located just a block from the start of the walk of fame. The entry way starts with a gift shop. The entrance fee is $15 dollars but you can easily find a $1 off coupon at hotels and... More

I'm always intrigued by these small, home-made, single-subject museums, but they are often disappointingly lame. The MOD was fascinating -- well organized, and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. It prompted some interesting discussions among our group of 4.O There was so much to see, I feel we only really took in a tiny fraction. The video montage at... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
