  • We did the four story walk up self guided tour. Lots to see and read. The building is the original Max Factor building so fairly historical in itself.  more »
  • Great for people who like the history of cinema, especially monroe. It's a very old museum and geand

  • This place is in the heart of it all but not crowded. First it is in the beautiful Art Deco Max Factor building. Make sure you check out the bathrooms - it is a stunning time warp. Tons of old props including the Batmobile and the Six Million Dollar Man/Bionic Woman stuff. Old superheros including Wonder Woman, fun horror stuff in the basement. They even have a pair of Dorothy's ruby red slippers. We spent about two hours in here and had a BLAST!
  • My kids loved the hometown funkiness of this museum. loved seeing how cheesy so many of the costumes and props are in real life. I loved the individual make-up rooms. It would be so fun if one of them was set up so a visitor might sit at the dressing table surrounded by powder puffs and hair brushes and red lipstick and pretend.
