What a wonderful tribute to the grammy winners. You can listen to music, see costumes, memorabilia, and great special exhibits. It took me back to great years of music. It was reasonably priced. Don't forget to ask for AAA discount! Well worth it.

This is a great interactive museum for all ages! Many different exhibits with hands on availability. Currently there is a Taylor Swift exhibit complete with costumes and a music documentary in the theater to view. Micheal Jackson costumes as well as Donna Summer.

There were things to do, see and play. A great place for adults and teens. There are many hands on exhibits that draw you in. Sound booths were really fun.

We enjoyed our afternoon at the museum, but it's not geared toward teens with short attention spans despite the interactive exhibits. Really more for adults. However, we went for the Taylor Swift exhibit which was awesome and enjoyed by all!

My wife and I visited the Grammy Museum on Wednesday afternoon February 11, 2015. We were going to attend the Clippers/Rockets game at 7:30pm, so we arrived at the Staples Center at 12:30pm, planning to eat lunch, then tour the museum. PARKING. We parked in a surface lot on Figueroa St. southwest of and across the street from the Staples... More

Some very interesting displays for sure. Especially enjoyed the costumes and handwritten items from music history. Also some great old film footage in kiosks on particular genres like gospel. The current exhibitions on Tupac Shakur and Donna Summer were good. Then, oddly enough there is an entire floor dedicated to Taylor Swift including many outfits, some of which were her... More

I would probably have rated this 3.5 stars if I could have but chose 4 stars rather than 3. We took our teenage daughters to this and they loved the Taylor Swift floor however the other areas were not so interesting to them. My husband and I enjoyed it. There is quite a bit of music to listen to through... More

I came to this museum without much knowledge of what was held inside- paid for the ticket and then walked in. Upon entering you see the different type of Grammy Awards presented to artists, pretty cool. From thereafter, it becomes a bit anti-climatic. There's a lot of history on music genres on the topmost floor, third floor featured the more... More

The place is worth a visit, though photography is forbidden, maybe because of copyright. But who could seriously fake something as iconic as Michael Jackson’s jackets from the Thriller video !? !? The only photography allowed was in the lobby by Thelonious Monk’s piano. The other artefacts, exhibits, information and the temporary exhibition to Stevie Ray Vaughan, (Nov 2014), were... More

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.
