Hollywood Heritage Museum

Located across the street from the Hollywood Bowl, the Hollywood Heritage Museum is located in the Lasky-DeMille Barn, which was built in 1895. The museum is filled with photographs from the days of the silent film, as well as movie props, documents, and other memorabilia. There are also a number of photos featuring the streets and buildings from Hollywood's golden age. The barn in which in which the museum is located was designated a California State Historic Landmark in 1956. The museum has been funded by Hollywood Heritage Inc. since 1985. Their goal is to restore, preserve, and maintain the memories from early Hollywood. There is plenty of free onsite parking at the museum. In addition to being a great place to visit and learn about the history of Hollywood, it is also a great destination for movie premieres, wrap parties, book signings, holiday parties, and other special event celebrations. The museum occasionally closes during Hollywood Bowl events, but if open, it is a great way to pass some time prior to seeing a show at the Bowl. Museum memberships are available and include free admission, a museum store discount, special member programs, program discounts at the museum, UCLA, and the Paramount Ranch, and special discounts on a variety of merchant purchases around Hollywood. Walking tours of National Register Hollywood Boulevard Entertainment and Commercial District begin at the museum and are held on the weekly basis.
