Warner Bros VIP Studio Tour: The Batman Exhibit

Warner Bros VIP Tour + Batman

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Batman, the Warner Bros VIP Tour‘s museum is currently dedicated to all things Batman movies. For one day, I became a tourist in my own city just to satisfy my geek urges. The tour itself is pretty fun, especially if you love the behind the scenes experience of movie and television. The exhibit itself mostly showcased costumes and props from the Christopher Nolan trilogy ┬ábut they added really cool pieces from the 80s and 90s movies as well. There is also a separate warehouse that showcased some of the Batmobiles.

Although, sadly, no Adam West’s Batman.

I recommend this to any local Batman fans . . . or if you happen to be visiting Los Angeles! It’s obnoxiously touristy but get a group of Batfans together in one tour and you’ll probably have tons of fun.

That is only partly true.

I plan on making many return trips as the museum is huge and has an amazing collection.
