We had coupons for this museum, so it was a bit cheaper for it. We had 2 and a half hours. I wish we would have had 4. Contrary to many here, we loved it! I went with my daughters recently turned 7 and 16. It's the only museum in their lifes where I had to pull them away from... More

It's located in downtown L.A and we bought our tickets on Groupon. 2 adult tickets for $13. We spent about an hour in here and it's filled with music memorabilia including outfits which have been worn to the Grammy ceremonies and furniture which belonged to rock stars.. I enjoyed Michael Jackson's costumes from his album covers and videos.

This was something on the top of my 'to do' list during my visit to LA last year. My ten yr old daughter would say it was on the bottom of hers. She did not enjoy herself except in the area where you can pretend to be part of the band. That area in general created quite a scene with... More

The museum is four stories and has a lot of displays including clothing, instruments, photos, videos and more. Although we didn't know a lot of the artists featured, we were really glad we went. You could spend an hour or all day here, depending on how much you want to learn. On one level, you can play a bunch of... More

We visited here on a pre-planned visit from Ireland. The Grammy Museum is good and has a good selection of history from various genres and artists, but lacked "something". My favourite part was the interactive screens where you can listen to different genres of music and the main artists and bands from those genres. Worth a visit

If you are in LA and enjoy any type of music, this is a MUST. It displays entertainers performance costumes, some outfits from award winners that they wore when accepting their Grammy, changing displays on various performers/genres and many listening rooms as well as headphones throughout the museum. There is even a drum set for you to work out on.

I really enjoyed our visit here - we took about 3 hours to see and do everything. My son is studying studio recording, so it was nice to learn what he is doing. Obviously they don't go into the nuts and bolts, but it did give me an idea of what 'mixing' and so forth is. Lots of hands on... More

My husband heard about this museum and wanted to try it on our trip to LA. We were not sure what to expect but we all really enjoyed it. We have 2 teenage daughters and they enjoyed it as well. Lots of music history. We had a blast recording ourselves in the sound booths. And I learned that I have... More

We had never heard of the museum until we walked past on our way back to hotel but so glad we went in. We ended up spending 5 hours in there...had to take a short break for lunch but returned and loved it all. It is not just about the Grammies but much more about music history. There is so... More

Pricing wise they are right on the borderline, where if they increased the price it wouldn't be worth it. Not allowing pictures to be taken was never really explained except i guess if you saw the exhibits on peoples pictures maybe you wouldn't have a reason to go. the interactive booths and headphones everywhere were interesting to a point but...
