Great interview

Recently went there to see the Steven Van Zandt interview. Very nice small setting for a live interview.

The interactive displays at the start are good. We'd have liked a few more famous artefacts from some of the stars and less clips of the Grammy ceremony. You can get that on YouTube. One thing that will change your enjoyment is the rotating exhibits. An entire floor devoted to Taylor Swift does nothing for us. Shame the George Carlin... More

Really enjoyed the visit here. There are different exhibits running at different times so check the schedule before you go but even if it isn't a full exhibit for the artist of your choice I am positive that if they are renowned there will be some sort of small display with some of their memorabilia. Really enjoyed the Tupac exhibit... More

We had a free day while spending time in LA and decided to visit the museum. We both love music and never miss th Grammy awards. The fee is very low by LA standards. We wandered around for approx 2 hours and enjoyed ourselves. One small annoying thing is everywhere states NO pictures, so we didn't take any (even though... More

Great memorabilia pieces here. And entrance fee was very reasonable. Plan to spend a couple of hours here at least.

We went here for the special Taylor Swift Exhibit and it was amazing to see her instruments, costumes, awards and childhood possessions on display! My friend's painting that she gave her was also there!

Engertainig museum with original clothing of the stars. You can try different instruments and mixing. Everyone loves music so don't miss it. There are dedicated sections to Indian music and 2Pac. Hint: next to Staples Center. They have reduced entries after 8, however 2 hours are needed to completely enjoy it.

My first visit and I was very impressed. Very interesting place and very well put together. This is a must do in LA if you love music, or indeed want to learn a load more about it. Packed with information all around and lots of interesting exhibits. Loads of public parking, reasonably priced within just a few minutes walk and... More

We visited on our last day in LA and really glad we did, as two huge music fans this was fascinating stuff. The exhibits of outfits and lyrics were great, but what I really loved was the map linking the music scenes and the US maps showing the mini scenes geographically! Now, it wasn't as good or as big as... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
