The original Hollywood Wax Museum was, as the name suggests, in Hollywood - which is where it still is today. It’s now known as the Hollywood Wax Museum Los Angeles, and has been entertaining visitors on Hollywood Blvd since 1965.
The incredibly lifelike wax reproductions of Hollywood celebrities changes on a regular basis. One of the popular sections of the museum is the “Chamber of Horrors,” with a collection of monsters from various films, both classic and modern.
One of the appeals of the Hollywood Wax Museum is that visitors can get up close to the wax figures, posing for photographs with the life-size models. You can even get into costume yourself before you snap a photo. The exhibits also include bits of trivia about some of the stars on display.
The Hollywood Walk of Fame and the TCL Chinese Theatre (with all the celebrity foot and handprints) are both about a block away from the Hollywood Wax Museum.
