Public Transportation

Metro: The Red Line Metro to Hollywood & Highland stop at the northwest corner of the Hollywood and Highland intersection. The museum is just steps south of the southeast corner of the intersection.

The Hollywood Museum has pieces to excite film-lovers of any age. Here’s a look at what the museum has in store for you on each of its star-studded floors:

  • Ground Floor: After entering via the historic Hollywood-style plush pink lobby, you’ll move through to Max Factor’s restored make-up rooms, and then on to a vintage black and white photo gallery housing over 1,000 prints from film sets. You’ll also see Cary Grant’s “Roller,” memorabilia from Planet of the Apes, and Jurassic Park, and then a sparkly tribute to Judy Garland and her famous “ruby slippers.”
  • Floors 2 & 3: Here you’ll find a lavish display of Hollywood’s most memorable costumes, which will take you back to your favorite classic films. You’ll also see the corresponding props and photos. You’ll see the earliest Technicolor film shot, a Roman bed from Gladiator, the dog from There’s Something about Mary, and the decked-out golden Cadillac from Dreamgirls!
  • The Lower Level: Once a speakeasy and bowling alley during Hollywood’s Prohibition days, this basement floor is now a resting place for Hollywood’s spookiest moments, including the jail cell corridor that Jodie Foster traversed in Silence of the Lambs. You’ll also see Dr. Lecter’s mask and cell!

Additional museum favorites include the nostalgic Parisian swing from Moulin Rouge, a whole array of I Love Lucy memorabilia (watch how she turned into a redhead, and how Marilyn Monroe became a blonde!), Paris Hilton’s super-expensive party dresses, Elvis’ favorite bathrobe, and treasures from Star Trek and Jaws!

Housed in the beautiful Max Factor building, the Hollywood Museum keeps you immersed in the moments that made you laugh, cry, and beg for sequels throughout the decades. Visitors will walk away with a stronger love for that classic American institution—the movie!

Save on admission to the Hollywood Museum, plus LA's top museums, sights, and tours all for one low price with the Go Los Angeles Card!

Comments about Smart Destinations Hollywood Museum:

This has a reasonably good location but is overshadowed by so much else in the area. It is in a historic building and does have a ton of stuff crammed into what is a relatively small space.It can feel a little disorganized though being a classics movie fan it is definitely worth the visit. It also included some surprisingly modern displays such as items related to The Hunger Games movies but those were few. Our cards were easily accepted and though we were running a little behind schedule in getting there they did not makes us feel rushed. In fact a staff member stayed later and made sure to point out proudly some very special items as we were exiting.

Lots of film props to be seen!
By Disbabe Verified Reviewer from Stafford, United Kingdom on
Pros:
Well presented
Cons:
A small exhibit
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Hollywood Museum:

We went at opening (10am). There were 4 floors of exhibits. Horror in the basement, Max Factor exhibits on the ground floor, Lucille Ball on the 1st floor, and old/new film props on the 2nd floor. We found the exhibit interesting, but smaller in size than we thought it would be. It took us only 45 minutes to tour the whole building. We took lots of photo's and felt that the exhibits were well presented. It was definately worth visiting.

Comments about Smart Destinations Hollywood Museum:

I was visiting Hollywood and stumbled upon The Hollywood Museum. It is located right near the Kodak Center. I was there while they were setting up the red carpet for the Academy Awards and decided to check out the special award season exhibit in the museum. They had costumes and movie props from all the big films this year. I loved seeing the Twilight stuff! They had costumes from Bella, Edward and Jacob! I also liked seeing Megan Fox's costumes from Transformers. Its cool to see how big/small the celebrities are! I also loved walking downstairs where they had the set from Silence of the Lambs! I got to walk in Hannibal Lector's padded cell which was creepy. The museum had stuff from old hollywood and newer films. I liked how they show clips from the movies in each exhibit too.
