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

The four adolescent boys in our group had a great time at this museum -- interactive and educational all at once. I'd recommend planning to spend a couple of hours (if not more) playing in the sound booths, trying the instruments, listening to the music clips, and just soaking it all in.

When you first walk in, there is a huge floor to ceiling screen showing clips of past Grammy award shows. It makes you feel like 'you are there'! There are 4 floors, but it isn't too large of a place or overwhelming. Plan about 2 hours to go slow and see everything. They had a new display about the Laurel... More

My first impression of the Grammy Museum was that it was quite small - but do not be deceived there is lots to see and listen to. I loved the general concept of presenting different 'pop' music genres in a way that made them accessible and coherent. Headphones are used to great effect both to put the music into context... More

Attended a book signing event at the museum and had a little time to wonder around. The scope of the music scene seemed endless. Wonderful displays of artifacts, interactive displays and overall classy experiences just left us wanting more. A must see if you are truly a music person, a great experience for those who are just curious.

I was pleasantly surprised to have been able to enjoy the special exhibit "California Dreamin' the Sounds of Laurel Canyon that was being shown at the museum when I went. This exhibit was the highlight of the museum experience. It is not a large museum so doesn't take long to experience. I would recommend they put up more signage showing... More

This is a great museum, if you get to see all of it. Because I had seen the museum before, we brought a large group here from Dallas, with an advance reservation, and were greeted with the news that the main exhibit floor was closed for a private event. Don't get caught by the same problem. If you can't see... More

There is so much for people to see. You have clothing to sound to writing to production and how they do lots of it! There is a LOT of history. You could get through here quickly in a couple hours, but if you LOVE all facets of music I could see how a person could spend a full day in... More

We enjoyed visiting here on our recent trip to LA. Both my husband and I are big music lovers so we found lots to do here--just didn't leave enough time. The exhibit on the music of Laurel Canyon was very interesting, and the movie they had was fantastic--if anything, it was a bit long as I wanted to spend more... More

Wife and I decided to kill some time before the Beyonce concert at Staples Center. So we decided to head into here. Worth your $. See what the stars wore and catch some Grammy history.
