We happened to be the first visitors in the museum on a Saturday morning and had the museum to ourselves for a short while. The first floor has these wonderful rooms (in the beautiful, Art Deco Max Factor building) with displays of Hollywood leading ladies and their beauty history. Downstairs is the Hollywood Horror exhibit..great for horror movie buffs. We stayed the longest on the fourth floor exhibit which had so many items for Hollywood history you would lose count. If you are a movie buff--this museum is for you. We had a bite to eat at Mel's diner right after our tour, and we noticed that if you eat at Mel's Diner first, you get a discount to the museum. Easy parking is on the right of Mel's. The museum is located just around the corner from Grauman's Chinese Theatre and Kodak Theatre.

I really didn't think I'd be there that long, maybe an hour or so, but I love old movies and enjoyed looking at all the pictures and memorabilia and stayed 3 hours. The only problem with this place is that there is not much information on how they got a lot of the clothes, shoes, cars etc nor much background information. For instance, there is a pair of ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz, but just a small card saying they were used in the film. Some of the artifacts are so interesting, you just wish you knew more. As well as some of the old stuff from 30's, 40's etc. there is nearly an entire floor dedicated to "I LOVE LUCY". There's also a creepy part of the museum, with (surprisingly) some Dexter memorabilia as well as a portion of the set from Silence of the Lambs. Marilyn's car was pretty cool too. The beautiful dress that Angelina Jolie wore to the Mr. & Mrs. Smith premiere was pretty awesome too! I think this museum is definitely worth seeing at least once.

Museum was great, but we were charged full price even though there was no access to the second floor because a new exhibit was being created. Pricy.

We visited the museum and it was fun to see genuine sets and costumes from Hollywood. It's a "must do" when visiting Hollywood Blvd.
