The Hollywood Museum in the Historic Max Factor Building in Los Angeles is a wonderful tribute to both show business and the community of Hollywood. It pays homage to major motion pictures, independent films, classic TV shows, modern streaming hits, and long-running soap operas.
The museum has four floors of breathtaking exhibits, and it’s home to more than 10,000 authentic show biz treasures. It has one-of-a-kind costumes, props, posters, photographs, scripts, personal artifacts, and vintage memorabilia.
