What a hidden gem

What a surprise this place was. From the front, it looked like nothing. But it is 4 stories of sheer delight if you like music.

Definitely worth a visit! Inexpensive admission. Very informative , with plenty of interactive displays. The museum shows not only history of the Grammy Award but exhibits history of music and different genres as well as different roles/ jobs within the industry. Absolutely enjoyed my visit, spend more then 2 hours here!

Loved the interactive exhibits & in depth insights into specific musicians. The Ramones exhibit was very informative, even though I'm not a massive fan, it was engaging!

We were Grammy Museum members a few years ago and then got out of the habit but have started attending their concerts/personal up close music artist interviews again recently. The theatre is very quaint (250 seats) and you not only get to hear some known as well as unsung music but you get an in-depth and personal look at many,... More

Good experience, went with my wife and infant son, we all had a great time. The Grammy Museum has a great balance of educational musical history of many/all genres, and has plenty of interactive exhibits - music making, instrument playing, short videos about the history of different artists, producers, genres, etc. Was very enjoyable, and would definitely recommend as a...

Jazz, blues, rock and roll, and pop is all covered. It includes a lot of history and also the mechanics behind making the music. It could be visited often during the year and you would learn something new each time.

Took our 3 year old before nap time maybe not the best idea, but... Price is right just 12.95 for adults and kids under 5 free. Really upbeat with great music, pictures and costumes, all time frames and music styles covered, we stayed just 1 hour and 15, but could have stayed 4 hours. Museum is 4 floors, the interactive...

I was lucky enough to visit this museum during a display highlighting the folk-rock era. There are lots of hands-on displays and lots of music to listen to,

There are 3 floors or videos and artifacts of well-known artists. In light of all the artists across all genres, I was surprised the exhibits were not more robust. But you will see some cool things and see how music is so universal through the interactive exhibit. AAA memberships will save a couple dollars for entry. Give yourself about 1.5... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
