Visiting the Hollywood Heritage Museum
If you’ve been to the Hollywood Bowl you probably recognize this building as it’s located smack dab in the middle of one of the parking lots. What you may not know is this small structure is a key piece of Hollywood history. This building is the Lasky De Mille Barn and is one of the original Hollywood studios. In fact, this very structure produced the first feature film shot in Hollywood – 1914’s The Squaw Man. Today the barn houses the Hollywood Heritage Museum – a hidden gem that celebrates the early days of Hollywood.
When you first enter the museum you’ll see a recreation of Cecil B. De Mille’s office.
Along with this are a number of exhibits highlighting the silent era and the early days of sound.
|One of Buster Keaton’s film projectors!|
|All about Valentino|
And if you visit right now you’ll be treated to an exhibit on The Great Gatsby.
|Armed Services Edition – distributed free to servicemen|
This museum is a true treasure!
