Owner description: The scene along Hollywood Boulevard has always been a bit strange, but now, the entirely new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Hollywood Odditorium takes it to the next level of bizarre, amazing, unbelievable and downright fun. With a Colossal Emphasis on Tinseltown, Everything inside is new and unbelievable!The Hollywood Odditorium is open again after a temporary closure to give the show a major facelift – in true Hollywood fashion!Visitors to Ripley’s historic Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue attraction will be greeted by the iconic dinosaur on the roof, but inside they’ll find hundreds of new unbelievable exhibits – many of them hands on and interactive –all designed for family fun and entertainment! Celebrities take center stage here, including Brad Pitt, Jack Nicholson, Frank Sinatra, Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe – but in ways people have never seen. Guests will find celebrity creations carved from phone books, pasted from junk mail, created from candy and even a lifesized Arnold Schwarzenegger “Terminator” statue covered in dozens of three-dimensional scenes from some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. Eclectic may be the best word to describe the new collection of nearly 500 different exhibits – all unusual, all family-friendly. Most are one-of-a-kind items, like the actual flag a Chilean miner draped over his shoulder when he emerged from being trapped underground after 69 days, it’s signed by all 33 of the men who were rescued. Other unusual items include a 1975 FBI Wanted poster for Patty Hearst, 17th century dog armor, a purse made from soda cans and gallery after gallery of early, weird, rare and often bizarre Hollywood celebrity artifacts. “Our completely new show will absolutely knock our guest’s socks off!” said Andrea Silverman, manager of Ripley’s Believe It or Not Hollywood Odditorium. “We’ve assembled an unbelievable collection that people will never forget.”Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Hollywood is open 364 days a year, 10 a.m. to midnight. The Odditorium is located at 6780 Hollywood Blvd., and is only closed the day the Oscars are held across the street at the Kodak Theatre.

“Fun!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

My kids loved it. We all had a good time. And completely on a different topic-- probably the cleanest bathroom in LA! LOL! I'd say it's a great place to take inquisitive children in Hollywood.

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Having never been to a Ripley's museum, I was absolutely fascinated. I could have spent more time there but as I was with others I didn't get to really check things out properly. Lots and lots of interesting stuff. I will go again when I can spend more time oohhing and aaahhhhing.

“Boring”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

I hate when I have to stand and read crap. And thats all this place is. Very disappointing and down right boring. Just not my thing I guess.

“Not bad, not good!”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

I've been to other Ripley's, and this one was just mediocre. There were lots of oddities like pictures made of airsoft bullets and candy, but not a lot of other "gross" stuff (which my 13 year old was looking for)! It is entertaining, but I wouldn't say it is a "must-see".
