“Beatles Fans, this is it!!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Held a work conference at the GRAMMY Museum, I didn't know it existed until this event.

This is a great place, wonderful Beatles memorabilia, with the area I looked through focused on Ringo Starr. Amazing bits of historical Beatles stuff, postcards, tickets stubs, photos, costumes and drum sets, which I believe are the original.

Don't do what I did, and that is rush through this place, take your time, really absorb it. You will like it!

Caught the temporary Ringo Starr exhibit on its last day and enjoyed a vivid walk down memory lane but didn't find much else to excite me enough to want to deal with the hassles of traffic and parking plus expense to get there. There were lots of technical, hands-on exhibits--several of which weren't working and some areas had too many sound tracks running in close proximity which made for an auditory nightmare. Teen boys seemed to enjoy "playing" the various instruments--so much that it was impossible for anyone else to have a go. The shop had nothing unique or even desirable and all of it over-priced. The Jenny Rivera tribute area was quite popular with the Latin visitors and it was fascinating to see several iconic MJ jackets up close as the workmanship was amazing. I had bought a membership online before I went thinking I might like to go back but unless they have a really interesting special exhibit I'd rather spend my time and $$ re-visiting the permanent collections at one of the Gettys.

“A fun time for music lovers--and educational, too”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We're Beatles fans who visited in order to see the Ringo Starr exhibit on the second floor, one of the rotating non-permanent exhibits. There was enough to see and experience that we could have spent much more time there. Music videos, costume and drum set displays, and lots of interactive experiences. We could play the drums, record our voices singing along to "Yellow Submarine," put on earphones and mix sound, or just sit on a couch and watch the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show on a TV set--not to mention shopping at a gift-shop area. We also enjoyed the third floor, where there was a history of sound exhibit, featuring a miniature gramophone that we could record our voices on, many more costume exhibits, and a chance to play the bongos and steel-drums.

“Head to Cleveland, if you can”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Maybe it's not fair to compare the Grammy Museum to the Rock and Roll hall of Fame. Certainly, if you have never been to Cleveland, heading to the Grammy Museum is nice. Very touching was the behind-the-scenes film about the Grammy Show that aired after Whitney Houston's death. It brought a tear to everyone's eyes.
There are some cool things there as well. The evolution of the Grammy award is interesting as you can see the changes to the award.
On the other hand, The Rock and Roll hall of Fame is the place to visit. I can't say enough good things about the size and displays at the HOF.
