The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We got to the museum and it turned out they had no exhibits going right now, as everything was geared to kids craft projects and visits with Santa. They told us that they will be closing January 5th as the building will be changed to something else - perhaps a hotel.

Great to have free admission (you can donate if you like) and free underground parking. Would have been better if there had been an exhibit that we were interested in, but what was there was good - costumes from the Masked Singer and from Suits. There were some great cartoons on the walls and a room where you could go in for up to 90 minutes and have access to lots of TV and film clips.

Admission is free to most of the exhibits. Check out the website for the current schedule. Free parking in the underground structure, entrance from S. Santa Monica Blvd.

Saw the Marilyn Monroe exhibit there. Everything was displayed beautifully and there was a film about Marilyn's life playing. The view from the top of the building is beautiful. However, there is no gift shop and the workers at the front desk were condescending and a bit rude.

We visited our local Paley Center for Media initially to support a local Beverly Hills #BoldBH initiative with a local artist Alexa Meade but upon arrival we realized that there was a beautiful and historical exhibit called: "Essentially Marilyn" and many of her original dresses from a selection of her movies were on display. What I love about the Paley center is that they have items on display that are icons of the entertainment industry and were actually used in film and television. They are local historians covering many genres and eras keeping history and entertainment alive. What I also love is that there is always something new from entertainment history to see.

I was just there and loved the new Marilyn Monroe exhibit.
They have a few cool exhibits that give you a look into TV, the movies and other forms of media.
It's free.
It's worth an hour or two.

We went to the Paley Center because they were promoting an exhibition of costumes from the Crown. Upon arrival we were disappointed that the big exhibit was all of about 10 costumes that took 5 minutes to see. They were also promoting a Shark Week exhibit that was equally as dismal.

There are only a few exhibits here. I read a brief history of the ABC founder, some costumes from the Crown and a Lucille Ball TV exhibit. The building itself is quite nice with very simple designs

The Paley Center is free to the public with suggested donations. I enjoyed the “Crown” wardrobe exhibition. The second floor offers an extensive exhibit of Lucille Ball memorabilia. You can watch and listen (headphones) different clips from some of her best episodes. It’s a must stop while shopping on Rodeo Drive!
