  • Nice place, especially if you like stage props and dresses. Make sure that you visit the basement, the most impressive part of the collection. Place is rather small. You can go through in 1-1.5 hour.
  • Love this place. I visit 3 or 4 times a year. Anyone who loves classic films should visit
  • Awesome museum. Lots of great props and autographs. The silence of the lambs scene really did convey a great sense of being in the movie.
  • Only a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood Boulevard. Really worth a visit something for everyone in your group. Really admire how the building has been renovated back to how it is. Every make up artist should visit you will not be disappointed. Make up, glitter and gore! Apprentice Mel's Diner that is next door used to be part of the make up business and the basement a speak easy, back in the day. Thank you for saving the make up collection!
  • I wouldn't recommend this unless you're a movie historian. Lot of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia (some nude photos too). Couple of costumes but don't it's the real one used.

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.
