Museum History

In the 1930s, the museum was a hot celebrity nightclub, The Embassy. Regulars included Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, and Jean Harlow on the arm of Howard Hughes.

The museum opened in 1965 to much excitement – the line to get in stretched half a mile out the door. Spoony Singh, a former amusement park creator, opened the museum and built its fame through his friendships with celebrities, the press, and fans.

The museum has had cameos in plenty of shows and movies including America’s Next Top Model and See No Evil Hear No Evil, which was released in 1989 and starred Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder.

What to Expect

The museum features current stars as well as celebrities from yesteryear. Marilyn Monroe, Samuel L. Jackson, and Leonardo DiCaprio are all ready for a close-up. Cozy up to James Bond, Charlie’s Angels, Jack Sparrow, and other characters from movies, plus glamorous people from Hollywood’s golden age.
