Over four colourful floors, you will discover a wide range of fascinating memorabilia – from a genuine Silence of the Lambs set to the genie bottle from I Dream of Jeannie! This museum is stuffed full of artefacts and costumes – everywhere you look is another amazing or odd surprise. The museum is located in the Max Factor Building, and... More

This place is very chill and the woman who operates it is friendly, knowledgable and not some crazy Hollywood cook. She is just into Hollywood stuff and transmits that with her enthusiasm. She also let us store our luggage in a closet while we walked around. How nice! The stuff you get to see about make-up and the history of... More

This was one of the coolest things we did in Hollywood. Well worth the cost of admission. Great collections of costumes, props and autographs. I thought is was cool to see autographs from Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and others from old timey Hollywood. The horror collection in the basement was spooky. Pieces from classics to new stuff. If you're in... More

So sad to say this museum has run its course. They need to redo almost everything or close the doors. They have really neat collections of autographs and makeup from old movie stars! Literally whole rooms dedicated to ... Autographs in frames and make-up used on famous dead people! Most things are just so old that even a dad in... More

I really liked this museum but I'm a big old Hollywood fan! It's in a beautiful historic building for Max Factor and gives all the details of his history and how he styled the most famous starlets. The big draw is all the Monroe memorabilia for me. Also, good horror film collection and lots of more modern pieces (True Blood... More

If you are searching for Old Hollywood this is the place. 4 hours of memorabilia . Bonus, connect to a 50's Mel's Diner with the best Milkshakes! Around the corner from all the glitz on the Sunset strip.

I went on an extra afternoon I had. The people were wonderful and extremely nice. The Museum had lots of interesting stuff, however was not quite what I was expecting.

My wife and enjoyed visiting this museum housed in the old Max Factor building. The Art Deco architecture is interesting to see in its own right. There's a haphazard arrangement to the presentation of movie and TV memorabilia, and the museum could use a little TLC and reorganization, but a visit is worth the price of admission ($15). The staff... More

The Hollywood Museum is a hidden gem and must-see. Where else can you stand in the very room where Max Factor dyed Marilyn Monroe's hair blonde? Besides that, there is so much memorabilia here that you will not be disappointed in the visit. Enjoy!

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.
