First off, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Mr. Kenneth Horn, a gentleman who showed my dad and I around and helped me out with the elevator so I would not have to worry about the stairs. He was so professional and...More

The building itself is historic, the Max Factor building is where he and his staff made Hollywood stars shine. The building now houses a fantastic collection of Hollywood history. I do not like museums generally, but spent over 2 hours here, and would go again....More

I enjoyed seeing the old photos of the legends of Hollywood. I enjoyed the truck of the Beverly Hillbillies and the stars in it. I appreciate they have bathrooms on all floors of the museum.

We hadn't planned on visiting but decided to pop in after walking past on a hot day! Well worth the admission price. The Silence of the Lambs section is great. Great for TV fans, especially with the Emmy section.

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

I ended up spending about three hours here. It depends on your interests. I will say this much: This museum is very informative, and it is unique--unlike those other "museums" along Hollywood Blvd.
