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.

Recommend for anyone who loves music. Loads of nostalgia. My kids really enjoyed playing on the instruments and trying out the recording studios, so did I !

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

That's the memorabilia, not the music library. You could spend years in there with headphones on. Very nicely laid out museum for it's size, just not that big. The rent is probably pretty high per square foot at LA Live. They did a really good job showcasing all the Grammy winners from day one to present, not just the well... More

I had two 13 yo girls and two 15 yo boys to entertain on a very hot Los Angeles day. We read the reviews about the Grammy Museum and were not disappointed. It is a wonderful interactive and creative space that we all enjoyed. They have sound rooms to mix your own music, instruments to play and interactive screens to... More

Our granddaughter (11) really wanted to visit this attraction. So while on vacation we took her and her brother (13). I wasn't too thrilled at going, but that changed. This is a really nice place. It has lots of music related things to do in addition to information about the grammys. The California Dreaming section was really great. Surprisingly, the... More
