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. George Vreeland Hill

I stopped in here one morning to take in the AHS exhibit that had just gone up. You can't beat the free admission and the Beverly Hills location makes for some great city strolling and people watching. The AHS exhibit was sublime and beautifully curated....More

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
