The wonderfully quirky Grand Budapest Hotel was the recipient of four Oscars® this awards season: that included Best Production Design, Costume Design, Makeup and Hairstyling and Original Score. Wes Anderson won best screen play at the Writers Guild Awards the week before the Academy Awards. And so the Grand Budapest Hotel was a much celebrated film during 2015’s award season. The Hollywood Museum is currently showing the miniature model from the Academy Award® winning Grand Budapest Hotel. The Hotel miniature is part of a larger and an exclusive display in the The Hollwood Museum’s Celebration of Entertainment Awards Exhibit. The Hollywood Museum houses the most extensive collection of Hollywood memorabilia in the world in the old Max Factor building. Production Designer Adam Stockhausen’s handy work is part of The Hollywood Museum’s experience through April.
