Los Angeles Sights

Hollywood Heritage Museum

Updated 03/31/2014

Fodor's Review

A must for Cecil B. DeMille fans, this unassuming building across from the Hollywood Bowl is a treasure trove of memorabilia from the earliest days of Hollywood filmmaking, including a thorough history of the mogul's starry career. Large sections of the original stone statues from The Ten Commandments lay like fallen giants among smaller items in glass cases around the perimeter of this modest museum. A documentary tracking Hollywood's golden era is worth taking

in.

The building itself is the restored Lasky–DeMille Barn, designated a California State Historic Landmark in 1956. Early birds can catch the museum's 3½-hour walking tour of Hollywood Boulevard on Saturday morning at 9 ($10). Make sure to reserve a spot in advance.
