The museum had a good range of information, was a little overcrowded with stuff for my liking, a little hard to take it all in. Also would have been nice to watch videos from scratch and not have constant play. If you are into the...More

This is a great museum, the owner are nice. You cant bring you backpack inside but you can leave it with the owner. One more thing no phots inside. Ps this museum is interesting but it might be too intense for someone though.

A very unique look at the obscure. Customer support was informative and polite. Only downside was the narrow hallways and narrow spaces that made viewing hard especially went there was so much to see and read in each space.

The Museum of Death is one of those places that is not for the squeamish or the sensitive. Exhibits touch on the history of serial killers (Bundy, Ramirez, Gacy, etc), cult murders and death (Jim Jones, Heavens Gate, etc) and displays of vintage mortuary equipment...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
