This is a unique museum for the Los Angeles area. They have exhibits that will satisfy everyone's music tastes. The 2nd floor have exhibits that change periodically. Sign up for email notices of their upcoming exhibits and special events on the museum's website. The Clive Davis theater is a small venue onsite that offers special talks and musical events with...

We traveled 3600 miles JUST for the Donna Summer exhibit. After paying our money and proceeded inside the museum, we were told there is NO PHOTOGRAPHY or video allowed!!! What???? It's dresses and you can't make pics???? The museum is only 4 floors and the floors are NOT big at all!!!! I was shocked that some Mexican singer named Pepe... More

I was killing time here, and it was a really neat experience. The museum had the old and new, and covered pretty much every genre. The fashion section was especially cool (Beyonce's dress was amazing in real life), and the Laurel Canyon exhibit was worth the cost by itself. Some of it is a bit overwhelming-- so much noise and...

It was fun to enter and be surrounded by screens showing acceptance speeches of former Grammy winners. The collection is diverse in terms of genres so there is probably something that appeals to everyone here. Maybe it was just me, but since it's rather dark inside it wasn't immediately obvious where to find the stairs to travel down from floor... More

So many great pieces from various artists and genre's and a very impressive collection overall. Disappointing they do not allow photos but that was the only thing slightly bad about this visit. I have been to the mini museum they have in Kansas City Missouri at the Sprint Center and wanted to see the big one here in L.A. so... More

Really can't understand some of the reviews that said there was not much to see in here. We spent about 2 hours and could easliy have been longer but for our parking restriction. Its interative, there are instruments you can play with...we loved it! My Husband and I are in our early 40's and we particularly the Donna Summer exhibit,... More

I really enjoyed the Grammy Museum. Conveniently located in the L.A. Live complex which includes the Staples Center, Nokia Theater and ESPN LA SportsZone, it is easily accessible by the Metro Silver or Blue Line transit lines. The museum was built with one side in glass so there is lots of sunny, natural light to illuminate a lot of the... More

I happened to be in town on Stevie Ray Vaughan's birthday and decided to stop at the museum because they have a travelling SRV exhibit and they were celebrating his birthday with free admission. I'm I huge SRV fan and would have gladly gone out of my way and pay the $12.95 admission just to see his "Number One" Stratocaster.... More

The entryway with former Grammy winner video loops was good. We did come to see the stars who have won Grammy's , after all. The rest of the displays-costumes, photos & memorabilia were nice but the collection was not as extensive as we thought it would be. The recording & sound room booths, etc were interesting in a sort of... More
