- This Victorian mansion built in 1908 in the Hollywood Hills is home to the Academy of Magical Arts, an organization dedicated to the advancement of the art of magic. It's an interesting house to pass by on your walk or drive through Hollywood. The purpose of the Academy is to advance the publics awareness of the art of magic as well as to preserve its history. Nearly 5,000 souls hold memberships here. For members, the castle serves as a restaurant and entertainment venue as well as an educational facility. Membership fees are steep - more than $950 dollars for a first-time payment. Unless you're an avid magic devotee, it's best just to visit the online gift shop, which is open to the public.
