A Hollywood Oasis in the Desert
Looking for a little nostalgia? Visit the Debbie Reynolds Hollywood Museum, which offers a large private collection of costumes and memorabilia from the silver screen's golden era.
Reynolds has collected countless costumes, props and set pieces over the years and built displays to showcase them.
A centerpiece is Marilyn Monroe's famous white halter dress that billowed up over a subway grate in "The Seven Year Itch." Others include Judy Garland's dress from the "Wizard of Oz," costumes worn by Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer in "Romeo and Juliet" and Vivien Leigh's hat collection from "Gone With the Wind."
The museum offers three live shows in an 80-seat digital Surround Sound Star Theatre, with a cast recreating musical moments wearing actual costumes from the films and dancing to original choreography.
If that isn't enough, Debbie Reynolds herself performs some of these classic moments.
