Hollywood Museum

As a philanthropist and lover of history, Donelle Dadigan always wanted to create something meaningful for the community. With that in mind, she founded the Hollywood Museum, located in the historic Max Factor Building and just steps from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Dedicated to the history and heritage of Hollywood and the entertainment industry, the museum features 35,000 square feet of exhibit space that spans four floors. The museum houses 10,000 show business treasures from over 100 years of Hollywood history - it’s one of the most extensive collections of Hollywood costumes, star cars, props, posters, photographs and memorabilia in the world.
