Very good, particularly if you are into make-up and the pre 1970s era. Overall a good experience with a wide range of memorabilia, mostly from film but also some US tv too. Over several floors in the old max factor building and many areas still...More

I had never heard of this museum - and the street it's on is surrounded by car parks - so I almost missed it. I'm so glad I went. The ground floor is all Golden Age of Hollywood glamour. If you like 50s and 60s...More

This museum is a hidden gem, featuring loads of memorabilia from the Golden Age of Hollywood up through today, covering film, TV, and more. It's inexpensive and great place to gaze for a few hours.

Interesting exhibits from the "Golden Age" of Hollywood. Significant space is devoted to Max Factor and his son and the history of Hollywood screen make-up.

Enjoyable time at this museum containing original props, costumes, make-up, wigs, autographs, and even cars (the Beverly Hillbillies car as well as two movie stars' cars). We thought it was going to be hokey but were pleasantly surprised. Spent about 60-70 minutes with a teen....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
