Wax Museum - Hollywood, California

While in Hollywood, I wanted to visit Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, but I had a three museum pass to go to another one instead.  There's always next time, I guess! 

At the wax museum, I wondered how similar each figure would look, but all I can say is the best one there was joker.  It gave me the creeps, for sure.  In fact, it looked so real that I thought it was someone dressed up as joker, pretending to be a wax figure.  I didn't want to get too close.

I had a good time at the museum, but I won't lie.  Not all the figures resembled celebrities.  There were some wax figures that were close, but others were definitely way off.  Megan Fox and Brad Pitt didn't look anything like their wax figures.  What do you think?

When I first entered the wax museum, there was a section that  made me nervous.  It felt like someone might pop out and scare me.  There were wax figures of some of Hollywoods most darkest characters, such as Hannibal. Is this not creepy? I walked down a dark hallway with many of these wax figures.

Another tourist caught on to my fear as I cautiously walked through the area, so he thought it would be a lot of fun to scare me.   Yes, I did scream.  The tourist and his wife laughed at me afterward.  I thought it was pretty funny too.

Aftward, I saw a ton of other wax figures from differet movie sets.  Within 10 to 15 minutes, it was over though and we headed to our next destination.

Hollywood, California

It's been a while since I've written anything.  My blog has been taking a beating since I've become a graduate student, as I've had less personal time.  However, I still have many things to write about and to share with all of you.  I first started my blog to practice my writing and it has helped me tremendously.  Thank you for your support.

Recently, I flew to Los Angeles to visit my sister.  While she was at work, I visited the L.A. area with D and L.  One of the places we visited was Hollywood.  I've always seen images of Hollywood on TV, but I wanted to see the place for myself. 

I always heard Hollywood wasn't clean and that there were a ton of bums roaming around.  However, it wasn't as bad as I had imagined.  In fact, I actually had a great time in Hollywood and things weren't as expensive as I thought they would be either.  In fact, we found $2.00 parking with validation. 

I didn't know what to expect in Hollywood, but I had a chance to see a number of interesting things.  My favorite would be the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum, although it was a bit creepy. 

Here are some images from Hollywood during my visit:

I would like to return to L.A. to one day see a live show among many other things.  L.A. has a lot of things to offer and I can't wait to return for another visit.
