Went here after it was recommended by friends, and had a pretty good time. The staff annoyed me on the way in, because they made me put my small backpack behind the counter, then I walked straight in and saw two girls with massive hand bags, bigger than my backpack. I went back to argue it and they got pretty... More

Ever since I heard of this place it's been on my bucket list and finally 4 years later I get my chance and was not disappointed. Wish I could have taken pictures but it wasn't allowed. Very eye opening cool museum! Can't wait to go back and to get to New Orleans one to check it out !

I'd heard about this museum and really wanted to go but kept missing out on it. But on our last day we were down the end of Hollywood Blvd and on the walk back had to do it. It's full of interesting things, from letters to toys, coffins to cult and serial killer info. An interesting trip out.

If you want something different in Hollywood, this is definitely the place to visit. Some historical artefacts, but mainly photos and stories. So many things to look at and read, you could spend hours here if you went through it all. Some rooms are overwhelming with the amount of information there is, and not for the squeamish. If you like... More

If you're fascinated with serial killers, cults, original murder scene photography, taxidermy pets (some famous even) and all things death related- look no further! This place has some pretty amazing artifacts from the Manson Family, Black Dahlia, and heavens gate cult. It's not for the faint hearted, there's some disturbing stuff in there so be ready to be unsettled if... More

This was the highlight of a short trip to LA! I'm so glad we saw it on the bus ride to our hotel! If you are queasy at all, I wouldn't recommend it. Great memorabilia and very nice, knowledgeable staff. If I'm ever in LA again, I'll be coming for another visit. Don't miss the Siamese turtle when you first... More

I have always had a fascination with true crime and was beyond excited to visit the museum on my latest trip to LA. We went on a Friday afternoon and there were a decent amount of people in there. The rooms are small and can feel pretty crowded with more than about five people in them. The museum is not... More

The mere fact that this is the 'Museum of Death', you can expect to see an interesting array of visitors all out to satisfy their morbid curiosity. It's also not a very large place, so you may want to plan your visit on a weekday when you're less likely to be shoulder-to-shoulder with the masses. I was there on a... More

I wasn't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprise just how tasteful and educational the displays were. It's well worth a visit and the $15 charge. Staff are friendly and know a lot on the subject. Facing the taboo subject of death in this manner is highly recommended but truly not for the faint hearted.

I really thought there would be more displays If you like reading this is a place for you if you google "death museum" you find they have "bodies" in display like in the science museum. Don't expect to see any of that

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.
