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

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
