-Unexpectedly well done museum! Lots of interactive exhibits to allow you to both see, hear, and learn. Small, booth-type areas allow museum-goers to experience music history, music types, and technical aspects in an approachable and interactive way. Plus, outifits from the Supremes, Michael Jackson, and others. A real delight.Small enough to be done in an afternoon, not overly expansive but... More

If you are a fan of the history of music, when you are in downtown LA, it is worth checking out. When we visited on one of the floors they had a Frank Sinatra tribute going on. They also have a floor where you can watch videos and listen by headphones. We enjoyed visiting the Grammy Museum.

We went here because of the Sinatra 100th Birthday exhibit, but I was surprised at everything else that there is to do. You start at the top of the building and work your way down. I feel more educated about rappers, since I've been there. It's quite interactive and you can go into booths and sing, or listen to other... More

It's very interactive in playing instruments, being in the recording studio, using the knobs for voice/sound modulation, and listening to yourself rap. There are different booths that teach you different steps in recording (ie mixing, voice pans, etc) There is a wall of past Grammy winners for Album of the year since its very first year, music's evolution in different...

This place is a hidden gem that is not touristy at all. We went to the Broad in the morning and walked down to The Grammy Museum. It was only a 15 minute walk. We arrived around 2.30pm and there were maybe 6 other people there. The museum isn't big, but it is filled with such history and information. If... More

We could have spent more than the 2 1/2 hours we had free, exploring this great museum. There was a great tribute to the Supremes, Frank Sinatra and Ravi Shankar during our visit. The museum was easy to navigate and the staff was helpful. We will recommend a visit to the museum to our family and friends that may be... More

What a perfect gem of a museum! Even cranky pre-teens and edgy adolescents love this place. Why not? IT IS THE GRAMMY MUSEUM!!! All music, all the time. Not too big, nicely signed, terrific permanent exhibits. Yes, Ella Fitzgerald is there. And the Beatles. Really, don't miss this place. Trust me, I'm a librarian.

This museum in downtown LA is relatively new and fairly small. 3 floors of music paraphernalia and rotating exhibits. The highlight is definitely the “In the Studio” interactive display on level 3. 8 booths take you through a recording process and let you control certain inputs – very interesting and the interactive aspect is lots of fun. The rotating exhibit... More

This museum has a lot of good information regarding the recording and music industry. If you are into recording music, then please take the time to experience the cabins regarding mixing, re-mixing, mastering, etc, etc.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
