Takes you back

If you are a music fan it gives you a clear history of the Grammies It is presented well. I only wish there would have been more music. But I found it interesting and fun.

We were a bit disappointed in the displays. It is a small museum so took only 40 minutes to complete. You can spend longer by listening to various tracks. However, while we were there a 3yr old & 5yr old were given the "run" of the place by their parents. No one from staff chose to let this family know... More

What a FANTASTIC place to spend a couple hours. The exhibits very well displayed and the museum was spotless. I was a bit hesitant on what I was going to see and do, but once I got there, I was blown away.

This will be short and sweet - the tour was not at all what we thought it would be. It was self guided and I don't believe worth the money. We were in and out of there in 20 minutes. Wouldn't recommend unless you're just looking for time to kill.

We (2 adults) took about 1.5 hours to tour on a Sunday afternoon without viewing the special display on floor 2 for the Ramones.  It was a blast especially playing the instruments and listening with headphones.  There was plenty of interactive media, not just looking at music artifacts.  We used it as a time filler before an event at the...

Located in Downtown L.A., in the heart of the LA Live center, it is a museum Worth visiting. With interactive exhibitions (you can play various instruments) and historical objects, you will step back in time to explore music and artists of the Grammy Awards world. Temporary exhibitions and a little gift shop at the end of the visit. I only... More

This was the biggest waste of time during my west coast trip. Lots of interactive things didn't work. Michael Jackson's exhibition is just one small glass showcase, only a small choice of Grammy performances... really disappointed. And it was FREEZING COLD everywhere (AC) :-(

I expected this place to be a typical museum housing pictures, costumes and other typical memorabilia. Surprisingly, this part of it is very minimal. What I didn't expect was all the permanent interactive exhibits. The Grammy Museum is really more of a learning center. I left with a better understanding of how all the roles of music work - songwriting,... More

Great museum with great exhibits. A must see when you visit LA. Something for every age group. It only takes about a couple hours to walk the entire museum.

This is a four story music museum (as you may have guessed) dedicated to the Grammy awards and associated concerns. Many multi-media displays and opportunities to listen to some of your favorites. Various displays will tell the history of pop music and even delve into a bit of the classics. If you've never seen the Grammies, you get a pretty... More

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.
