  • A lot to see. But you can walk through pretty quickly. Could be better with the models. The cardboard heads are weird
  • Great collection of Hollywood memorabilia. Lots of items belonging to stars. Displays were set up by star, with some details and writeups to accompany the items, as well as the star's historical background. Inquire about guided tours.
  • Tons of great memorabilia and makeup history. My husband and I spent a couple hours going through it all. And you can take pictures! A great addition to your walk of fame tour.
  • Amazing collection of props and costumes ranging from golden age to modern productions. The complete Silence of the Lambs prison set is amazing.
  • If you are in the area, then it might be worth visiting the Hollywood museum. The admission price is quite low. The museum is dated and most exhibits are from some very old movies. But, the museum doesn't bore you. The horror movie exhibits at the basement level are very interesting.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
