  • Only the building is a monument to admire, and is preserved in good condition. In the interior there is too much concentrated in a few square meters of film history.

  • 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...  more »
  • After the disappointment of the walk of Fame tried entering this museum is close by. There are many classic film memorabilia especially since makeup and the processes of the era, to dresses donated by the star of famous films. The location is a House of two floors and a basement. In the different rooms are elements of props, costumes and posters and articles of press of the time. It is a Museum for lovers of cinema of all time.

  • A good place to see some wardrobe and promos from an array of television shows and movies. What brought me here was the classic Batman series exhibit which was interesting and had some of the original props and replicas of originals. It also has a good horror exhibit in the basement which was a pleasant surprise. It does make you want to catch up on some movies you haven't seen or rematch your favorites. It's a place to see if you haven't been there but I'd probably check what special exhibit is on rotation to make sure there is something to peek your interest.
  • The Hollywood museum was filled with TONS of information about the finest celebrities. The chamber of doom could definitely use some improvement... more light fixtures and a more interactive things would have been nice! Redoing the horror movie displays would also be a great idea. This is definitely a decent Hollywood museum!
  • Just a wonderful place to see the blossoming history of Hollywood and it’s stars, films and more. So many awesome exhibits to see of a variety. I loved it all and the service lady was wonderful and open to all kinds of tourists. A must to go to if you’re going to Hollywood.
  • A lot bigger than you'd think it would be from the outside! Multiple levels and the actual batmobile from the older movies. Don't be fooled! It's not just a historical museum. There's a lot of modern day stuff too.
  • Pros.. The Batman exhibit was very entertaining. The Horror section is nice. Cons... The rest of the exhibit is meh -> 😩 There was too much clothes... can't emphasize it enough. There was nothing much too look at... The air condition is bad. Some part of the museum smells like weed. I still recommend it but do not expect much.
