LA Noire Landmark locations: Where to find all 30 places of interest and unlock the Star Maps Trophy

Use our maps to assist with your 1940s sight-seeing.

LA Noire Landmark locations is an optional activity that allows you to soak in 1940s Los Angeles.

If you're interested in help elsewhere, our LA Noire guide and walkthrough is well worth a visit.

LA Noire Landmarks explained

Not a collectible per se, but Landmarks are 30 places of interest to find as you travel around LA.

A handful can be found in the north west, but the vast majority are to be found in the south east of the map. Driving past them is sufficient to mark them as found, so you'll probably pick up the bulk of them as a side effect of everything else there is to do.

If you're familiar with LA then, despite the game map's somewhat reduced scale, you'll find most of these more or less where you'd expect. If you wouldn't know your Brown Derby from your elbow, however, we've provided maps to help you track them all down.
