  • 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.

  • 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.

  • If you are a fan of the Hollywood film industry this is a must see. Located in the old Max Factor Building, they have preserved some of the old Max Factor make-up studios which are just off the main lobby. The museum has wonderful collections from the Golden Age of Hollywood to current films so you are bound to find your favorite stars. From props to costumes to photos it is easy to become absorbed in the collection. Watch for rotating feature exhibits as well.
  • Loved all of the exhibits but I travelled from far away to see the Batman '66 exhibit and it was well worth it. Friendly staff and they were very welcoming to all visitors. Thanks for hosting this exhibit and continued success.
  • Went with my family. It was really nice. So many things of Lucille Ball to view. And Max Factor is really really incredible. The way he started with makeup is incredible. They even have a small theater that plays a short film that explains how he got started. It's a awesome.
  • whole Hollywood movie history in one place, regardless of which studio they were made by. excellent. my only query was Big Lebowski in the horror section. mind boggles.
  • This is old Hollywood type of Museum and it's a pretty cool place to visit. We had a good time visiting.
