Hollywood Bowl Museum - features history, photos, posters, videos, and rock memorabilia from events at the Hollywood Bowl.
Hollywood Heritage Museum - (across from Hollywood Bowl) is dedicated to the early days of filmmaking in Hollywood. 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.
Hollywood Museum - The museum contains four floors full of artifacts, movie props, costumes, memorabilia, dioramas, pictures, posters, old film equipment and other exhibits related to Hollywood movies and motion pictures.
On the first floor there are "makeup rooms" dedicated to famous actresses like Lucille Ball, Marilyn Monroe and Loretta Young. These rooms contain costumes, pictures, multimedia displays and other exhibits. There are cases filled with artifacts such as scripts, letters and contracts plus magazines and newspapers featuring the actresses.
The second and third floors are full of displays, including props from famous Hollywood movie scenes, costumes, posters, antique film equipment and other displays. Exhibits range from tiny jewelry worn in films, to large objects like Marilyn Monroe's 1961 Cadillac Fleetwood.
The Hollywood Museum holds enough exhibits to keep you occupied for hours. But it's not open every day, and it closes at 5PM, so plan accordingly. The museum is located on Highland Avenue at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard.
Hollyhock House / Barnsdall Art Park is a collection of buildings and art objects located within a park on Hollywood Boulevard, about two and a half miles east of Hollywood and Highland. On the premises:
LA Fire Dept Historical Society Museum - Preserving and sharing the rich history of the LAFD by remembering, memorializing and honoring fallen firefighters and educating the public on fire and safety tips.
- Some of the attractions on Hollywood Blvd are museums.
Museum of Death - If you're looking for something a bit more macabre than the standard tourist attractions, at the Museum of Death you will find a large collection of exhibits and displays that explore many facets of death. The museum is located a little east of Vine Street. It will take about 10-15 minutes to walk from Hollywood and Highland to the museum, or you can take a train or bus part of the way.
