  • It looks like a hole in the wall but was a fun touristy experience. Cool sets, props, and costumes.
  • Great museum if you're into television & movies. The Silence of the Lambs set downstairs is the best...
  • It's a must stop for tourists, they have a lot of thing to see, I love the room from I love Lucy, and have good stuff about Marilyn Monroe, the terror section it's horrific good, the 2nd and 3rd floor are ok, and the history about the artist make up and Max Factor its very interesting
  • Lots of great stuff to see ! Awesome horror section in the dungeon. Oh a great Lucille ball collection too
  • Nice place to stop by when you're in the area.
