I can't add much to the other reviews. It isn't for the squeamish and maybe there should be an age guide, even allowing for the strap line that everyone dies. I enjoyed it and... read more

The museum is quite small with about 7 or 8 rooms. Most of it is very cluttered, it contains details of a few serial killers, newspaper cuttings black and white pictures of beheadings from 19th century china, as well as a film of a person being gored by a bull. There's pictures and details of an autopsy as well as... More

I can't add much to the other reviews. It isn't for the squeamish and maybe there should be an age guide, even allowing for the strap line that everyone dies. I enjoyed it and found it fascinating however, I did feel that the focus was on sensationalism and I would have preferred some more information and context, e.g. why is... More

Sorry but this just isn't for everyone. I don't enjoy autopsy photos or other grisly crime scene pics. If you're into that then maybe you might enjoy it. The staff were friendly though. One of my sons thought it was fun but the other bee-lined for the door as soon as he realized what kind of museum it was.

This was the one place my daughter wanted to visit on our trip to LA. It was an interesting diversion. It took about an hour to view. There is a public parking lot about a half a block away.

Admittedly an unusual topic for a museum. However, this museum is fascinating and has so many exhibits and artifacts that it is certainly worth the 15 dollar admission fee. No photograph policy is disappointing. This museum has several rooms dedicated to serial killers and a fascinating room about autopsies and various cultural burying rituals. Well worth the hour and a... More

Too much stuff cramped into a few small rooms.Too many people cramped into these same small room trying to take in all the items/info combined with a non- existing/working cooling system and you end up with a very unpleasant experience!

I was expecting this place to have even more shock factor but it wasn't as grimm as I was thinking it would be. Don't get me wrong it's not place for faint hearted. They have tons of information and you can easily spend an hour just reading all to documents. The exhibition is mainly focused on the american serial killers.... More

I was interested to see what was in this museum and had a great time. The information is from serial killers, autopsies, suicides, mass murders and assorted other ways you can die. Some was graphic in an interesting way and other was educational. Really neat place.

My son wanted to visit this place while we were in town for a festival. location was easy to find, and they have free parking in the back, which is a huge plus, though its a small lot and you may not find any on a busy day. Admission was $15 per person, which is fair. We spent about a... More

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.
