Having entertained the world for over 95 years, Warner Bros. welcomes guests to go behind the lens to get closer to the entertainment they love.

At Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood in Burbank, California, visit spots where your favorite movies and TV shows are made, and see the soundstages, sets and props. Find out for yourself why it’s one of the Los Angeles area’s most popular attractions. Hint: Book early and online to ensure you get to visit; tours routinely sell out.

Hollywood Made Here

Visit a working Hollywood studio and step behind the scenes and explore the iconic 45-hectare backlot via custom-designed trams and your own two feet. Tour stops include backlot sets, soundstages, The Batcave – home to some of Batman’s famous vehicles, and the Warner Bros. Archive – featuring the DC Universe and the Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts exhibits. No two tours are alike as production schedules change daily. Memories are shared here, too. Listen closely as tour guides talk about the filming of movies and TV shows, old and new, including Friends, Batman, The Big Bang Theory, Casablanca and La La Land.

Choosing the Perfect Tour for You

Studio Tour: Visit backlots and soundstages, see The Batcave, check out the updated DC Universe: The Exhibit featuring real props and costumes from Justice League and Wonder Woman, and visit The Wizarding World with authentic props and costumes from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films. See soundstages from shows like Ellen and The Big Bang Theory. Explore the interactive Stage 48: Script to Screen, where you can take a screen test on the original Central Perk set from Friends, fly over Hogwarts on a Nimbus 3000 or ride a BatPod through Gotham at the green screen experience.

Classics Made Here Tour: Start the tour with a champagne toast to the Golden Age of Hollywood as you set off to explore where legends such as Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn shot iconic films like Casablanca, Rebel Without a Cause and My Fair Lady. Discover never-before-exhibited period costumes and set pieces and hear stories about this bygone era of film.

Deluxe Tour: Join our knowledgeable tour guide on a five-hour experience perfect for mega-fans. This option includes all elements of the Studio Tour plus stops at the Costume Department and Prop Department. Arrive early to enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast in the exclusive Deluxe Tour Lounge, equipped with luxurious leather seats and a state-of-the-art audio-visual system in the private screening room. Guests on this tour also enjoy lunch at the Commissary Fine Dining Room, where they might rub shoulders with studio executives and, perhaps, spot a star or two.

Horror Made Here: A Festival of Frights is a separate special event offered only in October to celebrate the Halloween season. The iconic backlot transforms into a bone-chilling experience where some of the legendary Warner Bros. horror films such as It, Freddy vs. Jason and The Conjuring Universe come to life. This year’s event will host even more dark mazes, scare zones, a night tour, horror-themed activities, and plenty of food and drinks available in our creepy carnival.
