Fodor's Review

If a walk through Hollywood hasn't yielded any star-spotting, head over to this venerable icon of a museum, which has been open continuously since 1965. Get up close and personal with Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu, or pose with a dapper, lifelike Samuel L. Jackson. Vignettes from classic films re-create well-known scenes, such as Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart in The African Queen or Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump, as well as the figures from the Wizard of Oz. There's an homage to Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, alongside older icons such as John Wayne and Charlie Chaplin. Be sure to walk the red carpet with the latest Oscar stars and, if you're so inclined, creep along the dimly lit "horror chamber" where scenes from popular films of fright are reconstructed. The effect is heightened at night when fewer visitors are around.
