Was pleasantly surprised at this museum. Tons of costumes/ props and pics from the popular movies. Only downside, my kids (16 and 10) weren't familiar with most of the names.

My girlfriend and I were on our annual trip and this year's was LA. We did a "Hollywood" day that included the Hollywood Museum. The museum seems to be a mish-mash of Hollywood from 40's to the 70's. There's really no flow to it and...More

Excellent pile of stuff from Old Hollywood and early Max Factor (the building was owned by Max Factor). Not so much for fans of films after about 1970.

I really liked this place. It was better than I anticipated. Takes about 1-2 hours. Plenty to look at. Not wheel chair accessible. Would do it again.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

We spent more time there the first time because we were there for an event. 90 minutes would have been enough time if no event

We generally stick with Metro. Hollywood & Highland Red Line station is nearby. Or as other have said, Uber, or the Hollywood & Highland garage.
