   Marilyn Monroe, the most legendary of all movie stars, was born, raised, lived, and died right in Los Angeles. Her high profile has brought about countless books, movies, and articles about her life—many of these feature information that is skewed, stretched, exaggerated, or flat-out wrong. Marilyn’s Hollywood is the definitive tour of her life and will clear up a lot of the bogus stories circulating in the media.

   Often times, people like to focus on specific aspects of her personality, usually choosing to portray her in ways that support some sort of agenda. She’s seen as a sex symbol, a tragedy, a goddess, an angel, a child-woman, a lost waif, a victim—you name it. In reality, she was a smart, tenacious, sensitive, and complex woman who deserves a comprehensive look at her life. This Marilyn tour is the result of years of research and a labor of love. Chances are you’ll like the real Marilyn once you get to know her.

  • the orphanage where she dreamed of becoming a star
  • the former beauty salon where she first became a blonde
  • the restaurant where she met Yankee Joe DiMaggio on a blind date
  • the nightclub where she stood up for civil rights
  • the house (well, the gate anyway) where she passed into eternity
  • learn about the people who shaped Marilyn’s life and places that inspired her

   Marilyn’s Hollywood takes place in a comfortable mini coach. You will be getting out at various stops for photo opportunities; remember to bring a camera. The next Marilyn tour is Saturday, August 2nd at noon. (Check in time is at 11:30a)

   Tickets for the standard Marilyn’s Hollywood tour cost $60. Please note there will be a small service fee when you purchase tickets. LA Woman Tours uses Brown Paper Tickets. They are fast, user friendly and have great customer service. In honor of her love for children, a portion of Marilyn Monroe tour proceeds goes to Hollyygrove, the same children’s home that housed Marilyn in the mid-1930s.
