I didn't have my hopes too high for the Grammy Museum, as reviews seemed 'so-so'. I tend to agree with those reviews, however being a music lover and someone who enjoys watching the Grammys on TV, this museum had been on my list a while...More

OMG. This place is amazing. So much music history is here. Every Grammy Award winner is showcased, so you will see your favorite. I was moved at seeing the name of Elvis Presley. This museum is a history lesson in music. George Vreeland Hill

The Grammy Museum is an interesting concept poorly executed. The displays and exhibits are poorly displayed in the most uncreative way possible. It almost feels like they were filling extra space that they can rent out for events! The average Hard Rock Cafe does a...More

The exhibits were a bit scanty, but I particularly enjoyed the National Guitars and video and Pete Seeger display. It was a chance to appreciate all the great music over the years and find many a fond musical memory.

I attended as part of a large convention , not previously aware this existed. The exhibits, were well planned and displays, with several hand-on areas- make-your-own recordings or editing, and features of the ups and downs of the music industry. Good for all ages and...More

This is a must visit when in LA. Not trashy, no hype selling crap, just a complete education in music and all genres. The price of a ticket is between ten and twelve bucks and you could spend the day having fun and learning. There...More

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

Apologies for the late response. Absolutely 2 hours is plenty but if you want to read everything you can really spend about 3 hours.

Call the box office. Unless there is a special program that closes the auditorium I don't think you would have a problem buying tickets.
