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...

Very hands on with great exhibits and great history. If you are a music buff this is a gray place. Well laid out. You can take your time or move fairly quickly depending on your interests.

Last time I was here was just after MJ's passing. It made the experience even more meaningful when thinking about all our great musicians and the goodness they brought to our lives.

Not sure I've ever watched a single Grammy Awards show but this was where my 18 year old daughter wanted to go. It was very interesting and lots of fun. We all learned a lot and there was something for everyone in our family(ages 10-44). They had quite a few hands on exhibits for the kids to keep them entertained... More

I enjoyed this well laid out and fun museum. My 13 year old son did not find it interesting, as he didn't know most of the performers that were discussed. There are a lot of interactive exhibits. Visually and acoustically stimulating.

My husband and children loved this museum. They learned a great deal about music history and was not busy at all.
