It doesn't take long to go through, but there is a lot of cool props and costumes to see. From years ago to current past. Things like coffins from True Blood.

Located in the heart of Hollywood in a fantastic building which was once Max Factor's. See the original Max Factor rooms on the ground floor. Huge array of Hollywood & LA memorabilia on all the floors, lots of photographs to take for sure.

The museum had lots and lots of interesting artifacts of Hollywood and even some modern TV and movie exhibits. I thouht the most interesting part of the whole thing was the movie on Max Factor on the first floor.

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
