My first visit. Lots of fun! The permanent exhibits include a lot of very interactive pieces which were a delight! Memory lane... relive my youth. The videos of the Grammy's were also very good. Bring a sweater. The AC in spots is chill. I actually got tickets in order to see the Beatles show which was not as much fun... More

Spent 3+ hours here. Easily accessible location in the LA Live district. Fun to learn about the evolution of the Grammys, watch videos and learn about certain artists. Otis Redding and the Beatles were featured during our visit. Fun to see costumes. Well laid out.

While staying at the JW Marriott at LA live, I decided to visit the Grammy Museum one afternoon. I wouldn't call myself a music aficionado, so this probably wasn't a good choice for me. I was disappointed by the minimal attention paid to Elvis and some other industry greats (Rolling Stones, U2, Prince, Madonna, but maybe I just missed it).... More

I always love going to the Grammy Museum. The have several interactive permanent music exhibits to enjoy along with the other exhibits that are always changing.The admission price is not expensive and well worth the money. You can never go wrong with rock n roll!!!

We were here for a Scout event last summer and it was great. After the many floors, we were treated to a private concert. Fun for the kids.

Our trip to the Grammy Museum was excellent. It is very easy to tour, interesting and interactive in all respects and a real tribute to the music industry. What I particularly liked is the displays, while having many items to see and read about, were manageable. A lot of great memories contained on all the floors.

Good location, and very immersive experience. Facilities were obviously pointed out, and the exhibits were well categorised.

If you love American popular music of the past 100 years, this place is a treasure trove. Plus many interactive options we unfortunately did not have sufficient time for this visit.

Three floors with interactive exhibits. Expecting to see more memorabilia than what there was available. Much smaller museum than expected. Completed self tour (no headsets available) in an hour.

Very impressive history of all aspects of American musical history and temporary exhibitions. The exhibition on the Beatles tours of the US currently on was small, but informative. The thing I like best is the top floor sound booths where you can watch short films on different strains of American music.

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.
