Museum was fun, but was only good for an hour to an hour and a half

The museum had some great exhibits, mostly of the costumes worn by famous musical stars over the years, but the Beatles exhibit made it all worthwhile. That part of this museum... read more

We loved the Grammy Museum. The price usually is $12 per person, but because part of one of the floors was closed off due to updating an exhibit, they lowered the price to only $10 per person. The museum is located in the middle of downtown LA right next to the Staples Center. It is difficult to find parking, but... More

I wish we had planned more time to spend here. There's so much to see and hear at the museum. I really enjoyed listening to artist talk about their music and seeing the memorabilia.

The Grammy Museum is three levels of everything Grammy's. While we were there, there was a special Beatles exhibit, which included tons of memorabilia about the Fab Four. There are examples of the award trophies and how they have changed over the years, and you can even listen to some of the songs that have won awards. It's a pleasant... More

Location is not good, nothing to do around, and parking is veery expensive, but the entrance fee is cheap and the museum is soooo cool!!! You get to listen to different songs, play instruments, create your own remixes, and watch really cool videos. There is a session for the Latin Grammy, and one cabin to experience how the sound improved... More

This Museum is fantastic in terms of covering different aspects of American music history. The museum includes interactive areas like mini glass studios that allow you to produce your own music and little audio and film histories of different artists and genres. Located in Downtown LA, the museum is close to Public transport and other tourist areas like the Staples... More

I had low expectations prior to going to the Grammy Museum, but I was pleasantly surprised. There are exhibits, installations, performing costumes and interactive stations that relate to musical artists from every genre. My favorite area was the one where there were 5-6 sound booths that you could go in. Each one dealt with a different aspect of the recording... More

Fantastic displays at the Grammy Museum. Membership is worth the price and the perks. Clive Davis theater is awesome to see intimate setting with many icons and famous musicians.

I went for the Sinatra Exhibit. I really enjoyed it. I also spent some time looking at the exhibits they have all year round. I would come again for a special exhibit. Parking is expensive. I recommend parking a few blocks away. It will save you $10-$20.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
