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

Anyone into music should visit this museum. Filled with fabulous memorabilia and interactive experiences. The special exhibits are always a treat. Cute gift shop complements a fun time. Since the attraction is located at LA Live a lot of dining options are close at hand.

Great museum consisting of memorabilia, interactive exhibits and videos. Wouldn't miss this is visiting LA, takes you through the ages and you'll sing the whole way through. For $12 you can't go wrong.

Not very expensive $24 for two and we were pleasantly surprised. It is not a very large place and touches on a few but misses many of the greats! It still is very worth going. Being from Detroit, I was disappointed to see so many of Motown's greatest missing from the display. My 13 year old absolutely loved playing with... More

For the Home to the Grammy Museum located in the heart of Los Angeles this was sadly lacking. How about a whole section in Memory of those that passed? NO PRINCE? Nothing Big for Quincy Jones? Where is all the History and Artifacts of the Greatest Musicians in the World? Very disappointing.

The first time I came here I saw the history of Bob Marley.... It was amazing. I think this is a must to visit and well worth it!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
