This museum isn't just about the Grammy's -- it's about the American music scene. Really great exhibits and hands on stuff. Loved playing the drum kit! I spent about three hours there. Learned a lot about the music that has been the soundtrack of my life.

The featured exhibits were The Ramones, National Guitars, Smokey Robinson and the Kingston Trio. Especially if you're not familiar with these artists/instruments you will enjoy and learn from taking them in. Each contributes to the overall story of music and defines a time and place. In addition, the permanent exhibits and interactive studios are great. On the downside, it is... More

This museum was on our 'to do ' list. It told not only about the Grammy, but about the history of music in the USA. Wirh great old tv and moviepieces. Some of the interactive screens didn't work, but the Roland exhibition made up for that.

Visited the Grammy Museum today, and while I had a good idea going in what it would be like, I still left with a feeling that it could be so much more than what it is. First of all the admission price is pretty reasonable, and once you get inside you'll see why. There are a few Michael Jackson outfits,... More

We took a trip to LA just for this exhibit. I loved it, the boyfriend thought the museum in Berlin was better. So many good things to check out if you are a diehard of the band. Joey's report cards, Dee Dee's buckwheat t-shirt, Marky's black chuck Taylor's, Johnny's statue being inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame,... More

Fun museum---very visual, with lots of videos and interactive exhibits.Lots of audio recordings playing throughout, which was understandable but the sound overlapped quite a bit. Good for families.

This museum was very interesting. This featured many Grammy award winners and their costumes; etc. They had a Beatles exhibit which I loved. This museum is definitely worth a visit.

If you love music, this is a great museum to visit. Good presentation of the history of popular music. The content of exhibits however is limited to size of the facility and the fact that there is so much content that they cannot possible showcase all of it. Plan on 2 hours to walk through, unless you are one that... More

I don't know why this place isn't more popular. Take your family, friends, a date. Plenty to do and see for 2-3 hours easily. Out of town guests will find it very memorable!

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.
