I loved it here, so many fascinating exhibits.There was so much about Hollywood's greatest stars when Hollywood was magical. Plenty of photographs and information. Also most of the popular TV series were featured from 'The Beverly Hillbillies' to 'Madmen'. A great section on Max Factor...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.

Marilyn Monroe and all celebrities that are of no interests to teens. Old 1940-60 films. 1st Batman & Robin movies + costumes. It can be appreciated by those born in the 50s. $15 per adults. 3 floors.

If you’re someone who appreciates Hollywood’s history, then this is definitely a great walkthrough. It’s not interactive, but you’ll definitely get an eyeful of cinematic... everything. Definitely worth going through.

The building is beautiful, the exhibits are very well presented and interesting, The contribution of Max Factor to the makeup industry is amazing. We have been on the Paramount studio tour and this is as good if not better than their costume department.

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.
