In this museum you will find a lot of world records exhibitions. It is an amazing place if you are into crazy and uncommon stuff. The museum is not extensive so you can see it in about 1h and you are allowed to take pictures to everything. It is a little bit too expensive, so i advise you to buy... More

You have there just a bunch of reading parts of explaination about the record, and a photo. At the end of the museum you can try and break some simple silly records that is the only nice thing there. Spend there 20 minutes top and was a waste of time!

We only came here as we got free entry after purchasing a ticket at the Hollywood wax museum. Tacky, boring & a total waste of time. Don't bother!

This museum is more full of signs with writing on them than actual exhibits. A lot of the stuff in there is just explained with paragraphs on a sign. Pretty boring compared to other local museums. I wish there were more actual artifacts and such, instead of a bunch of signs to read.

Been here before for free and it was a waste of time. Im glad that I didn't pay anything to enter this place. What a boring attraction. The wax museum across tbe street is more fun. Exhibits were outdated and not interpretive enough for this places general admission price.

This place has lots of interesting and useful information. You'll need to read and watch videos. It's not much on display pieces. We enjoyed the place though.

We're from Cali but have never been here. It wasn't too bad, just a lot of the info were based on a whole lot of reading, then the vids weren't loud enough, a few of the interactive activities were broken. Aside from that we did have a blast when it came towards the end of the museum because of the... More

We took the VIP experience which was a three in one deal , it's a cheaper way to see the three things that my 9 year old was determined to see, there's not really anything there that isn't in their books , some good interactive stuff for adults and kids , my young bloke loved it and some good photos...

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
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 partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
