Out of date and dull

This museum was out of date and dull, very little about the museum was better than a simple google search. I wouldn't recommend this unless you really like trivia.

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

From learning about how fast JFK spoke in his speeches to how many COCKROACHES someone ate...Ewwwww! The pricing is fair and there's a package deal if you're interested. Overall, it a good... 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...

Just like reading the book, the thing that made it worthwhile was the 3 attraction pass for much cheaper than a sole entry price, grants admission to world records, ripleys and wax museum.

This place is seriously in need of an upgrade and in fact, a complete overhaul. It is tired and old and boring. Some of the activities that you could actually try were supremely lame and were done with paper cups and masking tape. My kids could do better exhibitions in primary school projects! Very boring and the facts need updating.... More

Just a whole heap of signs that are exerts from the hook which explain 3D models, pictures and videos. There a couple of interactive activities that are average. And when we got to the record breaking section no one was there to record all of the records that we smashed... ;)

We bought the VIP ticket from the wax museum and this was our last stop from the three museums we visited. A lot of the stuff was outdated and it pretty much exhibited the same thing Ripley's odditorium did. I found myself growing bored about halfway through though. I don't think I'll come back here again.

We loved the part of the museum where you are allowed to break a world record. However, this and other areas were difficult for my daughter to access on crutches. We received no assistance, or any invitation to use an elevator.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
