The Hollywood Heritage Museum (website) is dedicated to the early days of filmmaking in Hollywood.
Hollywood Heritage, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the historic built environment in Hollywood and to education about the early film industry and the role its' pioneers played in shaping Hollywood's history.
The Hollywood Heritage Museum is housed in the beautifully restored Lasky-DeMille Barn (c. 1895). The Museum features archival photographs from the silent movie days of motion picture production, movie props, historic documents and other movie related memorabilia. Also featured are historic photos and postcards of the streets, buildings and residences of Hollywood during its heyday.
On December 27, 1956 the Lasky-DeMille Barn was designated a California State Historic Landmark No. 554 representing the birth of the Hollywood motion picture industry. Since 1985 Hollywood Heritage Inc. has funded the preservation, restoration and maintenance of this early Hollywood treasure.
There are monthly programs open to public in which they screen films, documentaries, invite special guests, do a book signing for books related to Hollywood's history, and do special tributes.
The Hollywood Heritage Museum makes a unique and exciting location for wrap parties; book signings, movie premieres, Holiday parties and many other special events.
