I love this venue and we really enjoy attending the concerts they have here. Diana Ross is my favorite entertainer and really pours her heart and soul int her shows! Thank you Diana!

We had a great time at the Hollywood Bowl. We stayed nearby, within walking distance which I highly recommend. It is quite crowded getting in and out, which is expected. But just so you plan ahead and be prepared. The food/drink situation needs to be...More

Went to see Andrea Bocelli. Was 20 minutes late because of traffic. And we were not the only ones! After talking to people around us, they told us it has always been like this. Next time we need to be there TWO HOURS BEFORE.

On the grounds of the Hollywood Bowl, tucked away near the entrance is the Hollywood Bowl Museum. Go early so you can wander through the exhibits, which many are hands on.. To my delight, the exhibits change. The museum closes when the music starts, so...More

I have seen SO many concerts at the Hollywood Bowl. It's a landmark, a must do at some point if you're spending any time in SoCal. Check out the schedule. Any seat is awesome. Pack a picnic and enjoy an evening under the stars!

The Bowl is an LA icon, and for good reason. Some of the best live performances in the city happen at this incredible venue. Going to an event at this amphitheater is truly a great experience. One of the Bowl's best features is its beautiful...More

If you get a chance to go to a concert here, it would be amazing. We saw the Bowl during a Hollywood Tour and fell in love with the place. The acoustics, the atmosphere (even when empty), what a privilege it would be to listen...More

I love this little museum - very palatable - as it is compact - good for about 45 mins- 1 hour of the history and shows that have been at the Hollywood Bowl. I would have given it 5 stars but when we arrived, the...More

Its a nice concert venue, and conveniently located. My only caution is that traffic can be really horrendous getting in and out. Not the fault of the venue, just logistics.

The GREAT thing here is the cheap seat-which are often still available on day of show-especially for classical or jazz stuff... Expensive concession stands suck the air and paper from yer wallet though...Be warned!

We go an hour before. But after the new renovations, there are plenty of place to picnic. Skip the benches on the pathway up and enter the venue. That way you beat the lines which can get long the closer it gets to show... More

We didn't have a garden box but I'm sure it will hold your weight. Have a great time, it's a wonderful venue.

The Pasadena one is next to City Hall. If you buy a ticket for the bus it should tell you also. They have maps of each location on the hollywood Bowl bus website too.

Hollywood Bowl Museum (1 Replies)
Hi I'm visiting LA in June and as a big Beatles fan want to visit the Hollywood Bowl. Unfortunately there's no gig I fancy (it's jazz when I visit) so I'll settle for a trip during the day to the museum. Does anyone know if this allows you into the venue itself - to see the seating stage etc? Thanks
