Interesting exhibits from the "Golden Age" of Hollywood. Significant space is devoted to Max Factor and his son and the history of Hollywood screen make-up.

Enjoyable time at this museum containing original props, costumes, make-up, wigs, autographs, and even cars (the Beverly Hillbillies car as well as two movie stars' cars). We thought it was going to be hokey but were pleasantly surprised. Spent about 60-70 minutes with a teen....More

We viewed the Hollywood Museum on a Saturday afternoon & it wasn't too crowded. The exhibits and building were fairly old & requires walking up stairs. We did enjoy reading about and viewing information on stars that interested us, so movie buffs will enjoy this...More

This was the Max Factor building. Lucy went here for her makeup. So did everyone else. See Dorothy's slippers from the Wizard of Oz. Hannibal Lecter's cell. On 4 floors, leave enough time. You'll need it.

It doesn't take long to go through, but there is a lot of cool props and costumes to see. From years ago to current past. Things like coffins from True Blood.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
