Museum Of Death
6031 Hollywood Blvd.
Hollywood, CA 90028
The inevitable end comes to life at the Museum of Death. Founded in 1995, the eerie reality of how society deals with death is this venue’s educational theme. From serial murderer artwork and Manson crime scene photos, then to body bag and coffin collections, visitors are confronted with the reality of the ultimate end. Artifacts from executions, autopsies and murder investigations examine the technologies of death. The extensive exhibits deal with every aspect of this little-discussed subject. If good taste can deal with death, it is here at Hollywood’s weirdest museum where it is done.
