Not what you might expect. Missing tributes to many famous artists. You can easily breeze through in less than an hour. Save some cash and visit after 6pm for half price admission. Overall I was not impressed.

Interesting place, lots of videos of Grammy winners and performance and some artifacts like costumes. Presently it is also having an exhibit on Taylor Swift and we are fans of hers so it is just more bang for our buck. They sell some Taylor swift merchandise now too so for all her fans, it will be a nice time to... More

Took our company employees there (100) to tour the museum and have dinner and drinks on the patio. What a blast, everyone enjoyed it. The Taylor Swift exhibit was fun and informative along with the Disco Era and Donna Summer. Exhibits were interactive, educational, the exhibits on the 60s, 70s were especially fun given the very different sounds. I especially... More

The museum was not just about the Grammys as I suspected, but about the development of the many forms of popular music. Really informative for an music lover.

The Grammy Museum is located at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles. LA Live is a bit of a plaza of shops, dining, a club and the Nokia/Staples Center. The Grammy Museum is in a nice location and easy to find on foot. It was four floors and some really nice selections to look at. They have some Michael Jackson... More

The museum has a great interactive video showing the roots of all modern music including grunge, country, blues, pop, heavy metal etc. Visually, the museum is beautiful. The videos are great. Now onto Taylor Swift, there is a whole floor dedicated to her. From her wardrobe to her album. If you have a child that's a Taylor Swift fan this... More

If you have a Taylor Swift fan in your life, now is the time to go to this museum in Downtown LA! They have a great exhibit currently up that includes many interviews of Taylor, her clothes she has worn at the Grammy's and all her mementos. But this place has a great extensive interactive exhibits for every genre and... More

I didn't engage in many interactive exhibits (for example, they have a booth where you can "mix" a recording), but I always watched the Grammys growing up (and usually tune in now just for the music) and really enjoyed the exhibits. It didn't feel like a "historical" museum.
