Halloween 2014 at the Hollywood Museum

One of Glitterati Tours favorite museums is the Hollywood Museum in the historic MAX FACTOR Building at the corner of Hollywood & Highland.  Want something a little spooky for Halloween?  Check out their exhibit for Elvira, as well as their always popular Dungeon of Doom.  It’s here that you can find props and costumes belonging to the creepy legends, Michael Myers from Halloween, Freddy Kreuger from Nightmare on Elm Street, Hannibal Lecter from Silence of the Lambs, and Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th.

The Hollywood Museum is thrilled to have Elvira, Mistress of the Dark just in time for Halloween!

“If ever there was a holiday that deserves to be commercialized, it’s Halloween. We haven’t taken it away from kids. We’ve just expanded it so that the kid in adults can enjoy it, too.” -Cassandra Peterson, Elvira

We have seen her over the years in her signature, plunging neckline dress and raven-black bouffant hairdo accompanied by her unmistakable macabre accessories: ruby rings, serpent earrings, black fingernails, black pumps, and a dagger that she wears on her belt. Now guests can experience “Elvira” and her original props, costumes, and Hollywood-story that made her famous around the world.

The Hollywood Museum is housed in the historic Max Factor Building where Max Factor, Hollywood’s Makeup King , created the looks of Hollywood’s Golden Era stars including Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn, Judy Garland, Mae West, Jean Harlow & Marilyn Monroe and all your favorite stars…from the Silents through the 1970’s… Don’t forget to visit Max Factor’s world famous makeup rooms and see where Hollywood’s greatest stars got their “look”. See where Marilyn Monroe became a blonde and Lucille Ball a famous redhead!

Visit the largest collection of costumes, props, posters and photographs Hollywood has to offer!
