I am a die hard Marilyn Monroe fan. I was very pleased to visit her gravesite at Westwood memorial. This place is well kept and the staff was very helpful directing me to MM gravesite. They also shared other famous people buried at this location and showed where they were buried.

If you are into your star spotting then this is the place. Lots of stars from the bygone are laid to rest here. It is a peaceful place and not overrun by the media. Famous of all is Marilyn Munroe.

The best way to do Pierce Brothers is to first go to their website and look at the surprising number of well known names you will recognize. You will see far more in your visit this way and be reminded of some you don't want to miss. Allow a couple of hours and take your time.

Went on the dearly departed tour and they brought us here. They gave us facts as to why Marilyn Monroe's marble tombstone has turned pinkish and who owns the the empty spot next to her. The tombstones of many have quirky quotes and they plots are uniquely decorated. These plots are not cheap either, they cost in the 6 digit... More

It's a crazy thought that there I was, all alone with my partber, having our own private time with people like Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, and Farrah Fawcett. Such a peaceful place tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Unique experience at no cost.

If you like looking at the grave or tombstone of a dead celebrity, okay go to Pierce Brothers. If not, stay away. There is nothing there. It is pretty, sure, all cemeteries are pretty or at least different looking, but this is just a bunch of vaults for the most part. Marilyn Monroe is there--dead. You are in Westwood, there... More

This peaceful, very small, cemetery is located next to high rise office buildings and behind the Westwood Public Library. Enter from Glendon just south of Wilshire Blvd...drive or walk up the first alley on the east side, and it will be on your right hand side. There are lots of famous people here. Some are with large gravestones, others with... More

Situated behind several office towers in Westwood, it's difficult to find, but more than worth the effort. You are free to wander the grounds. Many celebrities have their internment here, you just have to look. Good for a couple of hours of quiet time.

There's parking at meters on the street. It's located between two buildings and you walk back to it. Marilyn Monroe's grave is the main draw but many other Hollywood legends are buried here. Google the names so you have a plan before you arrive.

This may sound macabre but there is something rather peaceful and quite insightful about this place. There are MANY Hollywood celebrities buried here but what's most intriguing is reading the headstones which often cast a human element to the celebrities we admired.
