More than a museum devoted to all things related to death, the Museum of Death is, in actuality, more akin to a Museum of Killings, with about 75-80% of the place devoted to serial killers, mass murderers, and the like. The collection here has some...More

Go there only if you occupied with suicidal thoughts to see the ugly dead pictures. You may change your mind. Otherwise you will leave disappointed. A very small museum with a lot of graphic pictures and minimum to nothing exhibit. Ticket price is hight satisfaction...More

The ticket is 17 bucks, it's totally worth it. It might be a bit scary if you are afraid of bloody pictures.. I would say most of stuff are cruel, but it make me thinking about life. Death is a normal thing to this world,...More

The Museum of Death is an interesting 'alternative' attraction in Hollywood. Suitably to indulge one's morbid sense of curiosity: if you are squeamish this place is NOT for you! I would really reccomend going as soon as the place opens (10am). It appears to gets...More

Interesting place if you're into death (which is why I went). Great display of serial killer biographies and correspondence, including artwork. An entire room devoted to embalming and funeral homes, coffins, etc. I agree with others that things could have been organized a little differently....More

You should be mentally prepared for what you are about to see...and smell. There are lots of photos of things maybe we shouldn't need to see. I was holding it together until I entered the "sample room", where maybe something wasn't preserved quite enough. Too...More

Super interesting. It was crowded when we went, that was the only frustration, but good for them for staying busy. I could have spent all day in there.

The museum had a good range of information, was a little overcrowded with stuff for my liking, a little hard to take it all in. Also would have been nice to watch videos from scratch and not have constant play. If you are into the...More

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
