Really! Just go. Worth the ticket price worth a day of your vacation time. Worth every step up and down the stairs and isles filled with music, art, history, memorabilia and so much more. It's part museum, part shrine, part history lesson, part music theory class and all parts fun fun fun! So go go go!

We came for the last day of the Laurel Canyon exhibit. Glad we did. Lots of stuff to see and learn about. Exhibit was really cool and good. Really about the history of grammy's and less about musician personalities. (If that's what you want--go to a hard rock.) Museum is quick and easy---then a short 20 minute walk to grand... More

This museum was apart of our LA Go Card. And like everyone said, it was a bummer photography is not allowed. There was something for my 7 year old to enjoy as well as the adults. Plan for two or more hours to see everything, there are so many interactive things to do! Parking at LA Live is not the... More

This is a unique museum for the Los Angeles area. They have exhibits that will satisfy everyone's music tastes. The 2nd floor have exhibits that change periodically. Sign up for email notices of their upcoming exhibits and special events on the museum's website. The Clive Davis theater is a small venue onsite that offers special talks and musical events with...

It's dresses and you can't make pics???? The museum is only 4 floors and the floors are NOT big at all!!!! I was shocked that some Mexican singer named Pepe... More

I was killing time here, and it was a really neat experience. The museum had the old and new, and covered pretty much every genre. The fashion section was especially cool (Beyonce's dress was amazing in real life), and the Laurel Canyon exhibit was worth the cost by itself. Some of it is a bit overwhelming-- so much noise and...

It was fun to enter and be surrounded by screens showing acceptance speeches of former Grammy winners. The collection is diverse in terms of genres so there is probably something that appeals to everyone here. Maybe it was just me, but since it's rather dark inside it wasn't immediately obvious where to find the stairs to travel down from floor... More

So many great pieces from various artists and genre's and a very impressive collection overall. Disappointing they do not allow photos but that was the only thing slightly bad about this visit. I have been to the mini museum they have in Kansas City Missouri at the Sprint Center and wanted to see the big one here in L.A. so... More
