Nice memorabilia. Listening to the music itself heightened the experience. The ongoing John Denver Exhibit was delightful.

but this is not a cheap way to spend time : however, given that it is next to Staples center , it is cheaper than a ticket to see a pro basketball game.....

I went to the Grammy Museum for the second time last night. They have amazing events there and the exhibitions are always changing. They are so friendly and helpful there. It makes it a great way to see some great music history. Also many restaurants around and the parking is close but a little pricey.

On a recent visit to LA, my husband and I visited the Grammy Museum. It is worth it, particularly if you are a music lover and enjoy a multi media musical experience. All forms of music are represented from classical to rap. We particularly loved the areas dedicated to jazz and classic rock. "Ella at 100", the video of the... More

A very interesting museum, this is more for older people or music buffs as there is a lot of history here. Listening to the different genres was good, and reading about the stars was very interesting

Always have a great experience when I attend the Grammy Museum. I especially love the events in small theater for screenings and one on one interviews, just superb!

Really enjoyed this museum, history of music, how it made and the awards themselves. There are some interesting exhibits but the best bits were the instruments and mixing boards so you can play at being a recording star or producer.

won tickets from our local PBS station for a performance by Chloe Agnew and Eamonn Mccrystal at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Both performers had been part of the Celtic groups from Ireland. This was the first stop on their concert tour, so we got to see all of the preparations they were testing and refining for future performances.... More

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.
