The scene along Hollywood Boulevard has always been a bit strange, but now, the entirely new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Hollywood Odditorium takes it to the next level of bizarre, amazing, unbelievable and downright fun. With a Colossal Emphasis on Tinseltown, Everything inside is new and unbelievable!The Hollywood Odditorium is open again after a temporary closure to give the show a major facelift – in true Hollywood fashion!Visitors to Ripley’s historic Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue attraction will be greeted by the iconic dinosaur on the roof, but inside they’ll find hundreds of new unbelievable exhibits – many of them hands on and interactive –all designed for family fun and entertainment! Celebrities take center stage here, including Brad Pitt, Jack Nicholson, Frank Sinatra, Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe – but in ways people have never seen. Guests will find celebrity creations carved from phone books, pasted from junk mail, created from candy and even a lifesized Arnold Schwarzenegger “Terminator” statue covered in dozens of three-dimensional scenes from some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. Eclectic may be the best word to describe the new collection of nearly 500 different exhibits – all unusual, all family-friendly. Most are one-of-a-kind items, like the actual flag a Chilean miner draped over his shoulder when he emerged from being trapped underground after 69 days, it’s signed by all 33 of the men who were rescued. Other unusual items include a 1975 FBI Wanted poster for Patty Hearst, 17th century dog armor, a purse made from soda cans and gallery after gallery of early, weird, rare and often bizarre Hollywood celebrity artifacts. “Our completely new show will absolutely knock our guest’s socks off!” said Andrea Silverman, manager of Ripley’s Believe It or Not Hollywood Odditorium. “We’ve assembled an unbelievable collection that people will never forget.”Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Hollywood is open 364 days a year, 10 a.m. to midnight. The Odditorium is located at 6780 Hollywood Blvd., and is only closed the day the Oscars are held across the street at the Kodak Theatre.

This is not for me a top attraction. It is very similar in some of parts of the museum with the Guinness museum. If you have spare time to spend you can do it but if not in my opinion just leave it. The museum...More

I hadn't been to one of these in years, and it was a fun return. There is so much to interact with, and so many neat facts. I particularly enjoy the optical illusions room and the artwork

We only came here as we got entry for free after purchasing a ticket at the Hollywood Wax museum. Total waste of time really. Tacky & boring. Glad we didn't pay for it!

I'm thrilled y'all enjoyed our venue! Your tips are PERFECT, by the way!

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

I agree with previous answer - buy a single ticket that gets you into 3 different museums all within walking distance.
