Hollywood Wax Museum brings celebrities like Marilyn Monroe to life in the heart of the Hollywood tourist district. The museum has been the longest-running wax museum in the United States. A renovation in 2006 ushered in a new neon sign with thousands of electric bulbs. Check out the "Chamber of Horrors" with a collection of famous movie monsters that grimace and bare their teeth at passersby.

  • I would've given the wax museum a 4/5, except for the unwelcome surprise awaiting us at the elevators. BEWARE THE PEOPLE AT THE ELEVATORS. If you are approached by someone who seems very helpful, take...  read more »
  • The Hollywood Wax Museum is totally great. I visited with my 15 year old daughter & 9 year old nephew on Oct the 5. We to loved it the characters they looked so life like that they can have been the r...  read more »
  • It was OK at best. Had fun but I have no plans to return on my next visit. They need to lower there price on EVERYTHING. 
  • It was a bit warm in there . I thought a place with wax figures would be cooler. Half the celebrities looked startlingly real. Some of the figures from time past didn't look so real. It seemed the newer celebrity figures looked so real it was eerie. It was great to be able to pose for pics with them. The v. I.p. observation level is not for those scared of heights! It did provide a wonderful panoramic view. The free view machines was a nice touch.
  • My wife & kids went in to the wax museum to day & they liked the museum until they went to look at the pictures that was taken as they went in. My one of the children tried to take a picture of the preview that was on the screen. When the staff member seen her doing this, she jump & waved her arm in front of the TV,& yelling at the child you can not do that. My wife call her out told her not to yell at her child. When they come out and told me about it then I called & asked the manager to come out. They came out & told that he was standing there & which he was not. Tried to say she hit her knee on a safe and that was why she yelled NO. That is not acceptable. Do not yell at a child. There were no signs posted and we were buying the pictures anyway. The staff is very unprofessional and need to be changed. if you have kids, be aware of how the staff treated my child and watch out for your children.
  • I had never been to a wax museum before. The kids loved it. There was plenty to see and everyone was lining up to take photos with everyone. You can even visit King Kong on the top of the building. There were other attractions on property as well.
  • It was a unique and interesting experience. Aside from the misuem they also offer a 5D shooting adventure, a morrow maze, and a zomie outbreak adventure, similar to a haunted house.
  • A lot of the actors were spot on! But then some of them did not look like them at all. I had no idea one of them was Ryan Gosling until I looked down at the name plaque. But my husband and I had a great time walking around and taking pictures. There were so many different celebrities. I got pictures holding arms with George Clooney, posing like I was flying with Leonardo DiCaprio at the bow of the Titanic, and kissing Johnny Cash on the cheek while he sat on a stool holding his guitar. Definitely worth taking a look!
