There are a ton of great little museums in L.A. When visiting Southern California, staying indoors looking at dioramas might be the last thing on your list. But if you’re already sunburnt and don’t want to drop a hundred bucks on a day at Disneyland, then try one of the odd, quirky museums scattered across L.A.
One of my particular favorite ones is essentially a front for Scientology. It’s the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death Museum. Which portrays Psychiatry as… an industry of death. There’s no beating around the bush. From the start it’s a laser focussed attack on this industry. Mainly at the end highlighting the devastating effects of withdrawal.
What this museum more accurately shows is a thought process, a propaganda. Any medicine when looked at in such a way could have a similar museum dedicated to it’s atrocities. I’m not defending anyone here, rather I’d like to say that this is a free museum. It’s in the center of Hollywood. You can go through anytime you’re in the area. Free parking, Free entry. Cool off for a minute and then proceed on your way down the Hollywood Walk of Fame. (Actually it’s a couple blocks from the walk of fame)
