  • My wife and I attended June 11, 2017. We had a blast. We stopped at Every figure, put on props, took pictures, danced around, did a little singing and acting. IT WAS GREAT. At the end, we took home pi...  more »

  • We would definitely visit again. The exhibits were amazing and very life-like! We especially enjoyed that there were a lot of great celebrities. I didn’t know what to expect but I really enjoyed the Museum. The wax figures are so realistic. I would recommend this to any newcomer in Hollywood. We really enjoyed the Hollywood Wax Museum on our trip from Austin, TX. It was clean, friendly, fun, and beautifully set.
  • I had never visited a wax museum before, and didn't think much of them until my kid expressed a desire to visit the Hollywood Wax Museum during our last visit to L.A. It was more interesting than I could have ever imagined! Stars from the past and the future, some that look so perfect it could pass as a real person, others not so much, but still fun to look at and play around. The sets are pretty cool, and sometimes you can sit next to a character and be a part of the scene for a great photo. I recommend this to anyone looking for something to do on a weekday evening in Hollywood, especially with kids. By the way, I suggest you buy the tickets that include the other two museums, Ripleys' and Guinness, both also very entertaining and nearby one another.
  • This was the best I have seen so far. I really enjoyed all of the exhibits but one of the best parts was the Horror Chamber because it wasn't something I expected and it had all my favorite horror stars. The staff was awesome and very friendly. I had a great time and would definitely come back.
  • It was so much fun. I really liked the horror section. It was so realistic that it scared me, though it needs more zombies. The wax statues also looked like the real celebrities. I especially liked Leo on the Titanic. Every girl needs that picture. I had a great time and the museum staff was super friendly.
  • Good clean fun for families. The Hollywood Wax Museum was one of our favorite stops on our tour of Hollywood. The kids enjoyed dressing up and taking photos. They particularly loved seeing some of their favorite singers. Very, very fun!
