One thing about LA that i like is the endless amount of weird stuff that exists. There’s also seem to be a museum for everything including what most people are afraid of, death. Why did i think that visiting the Museum Of Death would be a nice leisure Saturday afternoon activity? Honestly, his place threw me off for the day but not in a terrible way. It made appreciate life more and realize how fragile we all are. No matter how, death is inevitable.
Location: The museum is in Hollywood. Address is: 6031 Hollywood Blvd Hollywood, CA 90028
Cost & Contact: $15 for general admission, (323) 466-8011, Website.
How To Get There: I personally took the metro. I got off at the Hollywood/Vine station on the red line and it was a minute bike ride and maybe a short walk to there from the station. You can drive there and there’s a free parking.
So what the hell is this?: Well, this museum is about all things related to death. Anything from serial killers, funeral home, cannibalism, execution methods, etc etc. It’s pretty fascinating.
Good to know: This place has a lot of explicit footages, images, and displays, but they are all shown in a very educational setting and tasteful manner. I was disturbed by some images and stories but really, that’s what death is.
Experience: I really learn a lot about some pretty interesting homicide cases. They have actual footages, photographs, and police documentation on some of the most popular cases. It’s well worth the $15 that I spent because i generally like weird stuff. Yes, this left me feeling a little overwhelming and down but the really intense stuff are well off the main sight which allows you to ignore them or breeze through. There’s also a two headed turtle…wah!!!
Now, I didn’t take too many pictures because i wanted to respect the “no camera” signs all around the museum, but I also wanted some content for this blog post… and i didn’t really want pictures of dead people on my phone. Hopefully, this helps bring them business. Just a disclaimer, that these images are not a good representation of the content of this museum. I purposefully didn’t take pictures of some of the stuff to keep this blog G rated.
