About
The GRAMMY Museum® is an interactive space where all aspects of music are experienced, explored, and celebrated. We break down the barrier between artist and audience, telling stories of how music has shaped our collective identity and cultural understanding. By deconstructing the creative process, considering music makers through a broader social lens, and placing you in the creator role, our thought-provoking exhibits and programs showcase the storied legacy of music—the thread that connects us.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

    A Fun Museum!
    This museum is a smaller one, yes, but the exhibits switch out a lot which more than makes up for it. One of the floors was being re-done so we couldn't see it, but the rest of the museum was a lot of fun. I hope some day they move to a bigger space. We came for the Ghost exhibit, but loved all the different genres that were represented. The Shakira exhibit was amazing! Will be back next time in LA.

    Very well done! Music lovers will enjoy.
    We enjoyed our visit. We snagged a couple free tickets from the public library and then paid for a $15 senior ticket entry. Four floors of displays. We spent about 1 1/2 hours here. Parking is available in public parking ramps nearby for $7. If you love music and the Grammys, go! The Shakira display was very good. We also enjoyed the Grammy wardrobe displays as well as the Michael Jackson items displayed. Very well done. The films are worth watching, too. I watched part of one about music writers, and another showing Grammy highlights throughout the years.

    Must See for Music Buffs
    The Grammy Museum is easy to get to by Metro, right next door to Crypto.com stadium. There were special exhibits on Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and the Roxy night club which were very interesting. Although not my kind of music there were also exhibits on rap and hip hop, and I'm still not sure I understand them.

    Nice and interesting way to spend a few hours in LA
    My daughter wanted to go and I was lukewarm on the idea but it was great, Good value for money and the exhibits were really interesting. We wandered around for number of hours looking at and watching the exhibits. Additionally there are a number of fun interactive things you can do (Hip Hop are and the Shakira exhibit). I also really enjoyed the Michael Jackson "Thriller" video focus. Some cool outfits from Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Eminem etc. Would recommend as a cheap, fun thing to do.

    Music lovers dream
    If you love me the way I do, you’ve gotta stop here. My only regret is I wish we had more time. Start at the top floor a hip-hop lovers dream. All the music video and memorabilia had us in all. I would certainly visit this place again.

4th floor was closed and for that we got a little discount on the tickets. But even 16 dollars per person as too much paid for an event where not even a single Grammy is displayed. Very disappointing visit.

I loved all the facts, costumes, theater shows, etc of the Grammys Museum. I enjoy learning so it was nice to learn about various artists who represent different genres.

This is a little off the track in downtown Los Angeles. Four floors with floor one being the shop.

One tip is to start the tour at the top and work down. It seems designed that way.

You get to see a load of Grammy videos and performances. Objects related to winners. Hand written song lyrics. Photos.

On our visit there was a special exhibition of Shakira. I hadn’t really ever listened to her but there was a documentary explaining her life in Columbia and musical influences.

Museums are all about seeing the objects that tell the stories. This did it.

Loads of interaction around the building.

I am pleased we found it.

It was a nice place to visit even more since it was Shakira exhibition. It was fun and interesting. I was expecting a little bit more things to discover but I recommend to get a ticket and go there.

The top floor was our favorite. The first room had a film of famous Grammy moments that is a must see. Do watch the whole thing. Nice collection of costumes and artifacts. The Marleys display is fantastic with large photos and stories. The other floors specialize on a couple of artists. If you are a fan - great.
