The Hollywood History Museum

There is plenty to see and do in Hollywood, California, but the Hollywood History Museum manages to wrap it up into one building where you can learn and explore the events that played a role in the development of Tinsel Town. The museum features a variety of Hollywood memorabilia, all stored in the Max Factor Building at Hollywood and Highland, a truly historic Hollywood location. This museum was formerly the Hollywood History Museum and features Art Deco décor, marble floors, crystal chandeliers, and antique furniture. The first section of the museum remains true to its Max Factor roots, providing displays of Hollywood makeup artistry. There are four floors worth of exhibit space and more than 38,000-square feet of space. It is much larger than some of the country's most well-known entertainment museums. Tours are self-guided and include exhibits ranging from an explanation of Technicolor, groupings of costumes, the Moulin Rouge windmill, W.C. Field's top hat, pistols from the Errol Flynn move "Against All Flags", Puffy from "There's Something About Mary," and various weaponry from "Master and Commander." Visitors love the fact that the collection at the museum includes items from classic Hollywood films through more modern props that will be recognized by the younger audience. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 am until 5 pm and the admission fee is $15 for adults and discounted admissions for seniors, students, and children. Parking is available to the south of the museum.
