Dungeon of Doom: Monsters Mummies & Mayhem

Monstrous Movie Memorabilia on Display

Hollywood Gothique Says:

Though basically a year-round attraction rebranded for Halloween, Hollywood Museum’s Dungeon of Doom offers more than enough posters, props, photos, and costumes to satisfy hungry horror movie fans. Unfortunately, the attraction loses one-half star for erroneously captioning a pic of Christopher Lee as Dracula, misidentifying him as Frank Langella!

2022 Status: Since closing during the 2020 pandemic, Hollywood Museum has reopened its Dungeon of Doom, which guests can visit during regular business. The museum still promotes Monsters, Mummies & Mayhem as an annual Halloween event, offering discounts during the last weekend of October for guests in full costume, but they have not updated their dates and times for the offer since 2019.

Museum Dates & Hours: Wednesday through Sunday, from 10am to 5pm year-round.

The Dungeon of Doom operates year round, but during October the Hollywood Museum re-brands the collection of horror movie memorabilia, presenting it as a Halloween attraction under the banner “Monsters, Mummies & Mayhem.” Located in the basement, the Dungeon of Doom features props, posters, photographs dating from the dawn of the horror genre to current times, plus full-size figures of Elvira, Vampira, Freddy, Jason, Frankenstein, the Bride of Frankenstein, along with Hannibal Lecter’s prison cell from Silence of the Lambs.

For Halloween, a live element is sometimes added; typically, on October 31, visitors in costume receive discount admission.

The upper level of the Hollywood Museum is not without interest for fans of Fantasy Films, Horror Movies, Sci-Fi Cinema. Over the years, there have been exhibits devoted to Batman; Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc; Harry Potter; Planet of the Apes; Monsters Inc; Elvira, Mistress of the Dark; and many others.
