We spent an amazing afternoon at the Paley Center in L.A. recently. The Television Out of the Box Exhibit was fascinating and remarkably interactive. The security staff there encouraged us to experience everything fully and even offered to take our pictures. The historical background to the industry was amazing, and the documentation they had there was incredible. We were also the only two people in the theater (on a weekend!) that was showing the greatest interviews in television history. Absolutely fascinating, very reasonably priced (especially compared with so many other tourist attractions) and right next to Rodeo Drive, this is well worth the trip. Plus they have a fabulous gift shop for tv memorabilia.

Right now they have a wonderful "Think Outside the Box" exhibit by Warner Brothers in addition to their viewing studios. Here, you can see any television show you want to see (ever!!!). You could literally spend days here... If I lived in LA, I would have a permanent membership to this center just to view the old television shows! What a wonderful place....

My Fiancé and I heard about this exhibition from the local siteseeing bus in LA which stops a short walk away from the Paley Center in Beverly Hills. It sounded intriguing so we decided to give it a try and we were blown away. I'm a big fan of Big Bang Theory, ER, Friends, Smallville and True Blood and this exhibit has costumes and props from all of these shows and more. Some older shows such as Knots Landing and Band of Brothers are also represented as is The West Wing. For the child in you there are sketches and cartoons from WB kids shows such as Bugs Bunny an Animaniacs. The best thing of all for me was that you were allowed to take pictures (without a flash, but not a problem as the lighting is great) and sit on any furniture such as the sofa from Central Perk and the sofa from Bill's house in True Blood. I was in true TV geek heaven and even sang along to a few of the show themes that were being played on a loop.

This is a must see for sure! Loved the fact that they offered a military discount. Being able to sit on Bill's couch from True Blood, the couch from Friends' Central Perk, the booth from Seinfeld, and especially the costumes from Vampire Diaries was phenominal! The staff are super friendly and helpful here and will even offer to take your picture for you on the sets. Parking was easy here and its just a short walk to Rodeo drive.
