The Hollywood Museum is a museum in Hollywood, California, that houses a collection of memorabilia from the history of American motion pictures and television. It is housed in the historic Max Factor Building on Highland Avenue designed by American architect Simeon Charles Lee.
The collection of the Hollywood Museum contains over 11,000 items, including costumes, props, stop motion figures, photographs, scripts, and other artifacts. Among the exhibits are the original four makeup rooms used by pioneering Hollywood makeup artist Max Factor—one for redheads, one for blondes, one for brownettes, and one for brunettes.
The museum is connected to a branch of Mel's Drive-In restaurant.
In June 2016, during LGBT Pride Month, the museum hosted an exhibition called "Reel to Real: Portrayals and Perceptions of Gays in Hollywood".
