“For the Music Lover in all of Us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Spent several hours at the Grammy Museum. They were spot-lighting the Beach Boys at the time. Wonderful memorabilia from the group. There was also a tribute to Whitney Houston that was very well done. Lots of interactive displays and exhibits from different musical era's. I think everyone would find something to love about this museum.

“So much for the music lover, plus special shows!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I went the other night because I won tickets to a special documentary screening and live performance by Jim Lauderdale. It was great – and myself as well as many others had no idea the Museum did these kinds of up-close and very personal things with entertainers. Also, the Grammy Museum archives are not open and available, so you can see and hear all programs such as this one. This just recently became available. It is a great place and I don’t know why more people don’t check it out.

“Fantastic interactive informative museum, for the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The Grammy Museum is really well put together, extremely informative. I could have spent 5 - 6 hours there. Very interactive, including "An Evening With..." exhibit to view previous events held in the Clive Davis Theatre. Each month there is a spotlight on a band -- when I was there it was the Beach Boys, complete with handwritten lyrics, yearbooks, even an essay written by Brian Wilson when he was a student. Interesting exhibit on Epicenters of Music through the years narrated by Dave Alvin; you can help write a song at the songwriter exhibit; you can accompany a band on the drums or conga; learn the steps of a recording session; see the history of Columbia records. I was amazed at the amount of information and surprised at what a good time I had. Good for the whole family.

“Interactive museum suitable for all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Went here with my mum as we were on our way to Staples Center and had a few hours to spare. We are not really big music fans but still we spent a good two hours here. A music lover would probably spent longer here though! There were three levels of exhibits and they were all really informative and interactive. Some even allowed you to co-write a song, play some instruments and sing along.

“Not much of Michael Jackson..what's up with that?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We had some down time and decided to visit the Grammy museum which we enjoyed,however...so surprised to find out that MJ did not have a bigger exhibit...He is the king of Pop and was very upset to see the lack of info about MJ...It was cool to see Some of his custom jackets especially the jacket he wore in thriller...It's definitely worth the trip..but they need more of Michael!!!!!!
