Hollywood Bowl Museum reviews
One of the best concert venues in the world! So Romantic! Saw a ton of legends perform here from Billy Joel, Earth Wind & Fire, and they used to do the Playboy Jazz Festival here. If you want... more »
An interesting museum about the history of this historical place, worth a visit. We also saw some rehearsals for that night and the people at the doors were very friendly and helpful. more »
I'm a musician, so my opinion is going to be heavily biased as is, but truly you feel an overwhelming sense of history in this museum. There are few places in the world that have hosted such iconic performances, bands or entertainers. If you are even in the slightest passionate about music or history, go here while you're in Los Angeles.
The Hollywood bowl seems like a very cool structure and a great place to see a show. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the facility as it was closed for construction. The museum was honestly very small and mostly dull. Admission is free though so if you are in Hollywood and need to kill 30 minutes this is a cheap way to do it.
