“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

This place is well hidden and for a good reason. You will spend hours here reading the headstones. There are countless famous people buried here.

“Marilyn,Truman, Natalie and Farrah!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Love this place! A sweet little oasis in the heart of Westwood!
More famous people are buried here per square inch than anywhere else in the world, I would bet. The entry way is a tucked between a parking structure and an office building, making it a bit of a challenge to find, but absolutely worth visiting!!

“Beautiful, Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

On my first trip to LA, I visited this Westwood Cemetary, as it is home to the final resting place of Marilyn Monroe, and she has been my idol since the 6th grade. It is a very small, well kept circular Cemetary. It is very hard to find. Once you get on Wilshire Blvd turn left into where it says parking garage, it is right before the library, so if you reach the library you have gone too far. When you turn into the area that says parking garage, you are in between tall buildings, just proceed forward, and you will see the sign for the Westwood Memorial Cemetary.

Many celebrities are buried here, and it is such a beautiful, peaceful place to pay respects to your favorite icons.

Take Care
