And the winner is....YOU! The GRAMMY Museum is a musically fascinating journey, and an interactive celebration of music in downtown Los Angeles. Turn up the beat over four floors of modern exhibits, interactive experiences and interesting films that will give you a one-of-a-kind experience. They want to engage you, educate you, and inspire you - just like music does!
There is over 30,000 square feet of interactive, traveling and permanent exhibits to immerse yourself in during your time there - this includes over two dozen exhibits along that explore the greatest of the GRAMMY music! You whole family will find something they love - rock, classical, hip hop to country....
The Crossroads exhibition invites you to explore nearly 160 genres of music! Open them up on the interactive table in front of you to reveal photos, songs and stories that describe the impact that the music had on the world, as well as the music itself.
Journey down the Songwriters Hall of Fame - how many of these songs do you know? How many song writers have you heard of? You can also collaborate in writing a song with some songwriters in the songwriting kiosks! You never know, you could be writing the next bit thing!
Ever wondered how a song gets from someone's head to your radio? The third floor is dedicated to the art of recording, and the revolutions of recorded sound through the years. It's a fascinating process (and one that takes a lot of hard work and dedication for all of you budding producers and artists!)
If there are any budding GRAMMY winners in the family, the museum is a great inspiration to what can be achieved, and to see that anything is possible - no matter what your background.
For those really loving the experience, you can join one of the "Evening With" sessions where legends such as John Mayer and Ringo Starr participate in Q&A sessions and a brief performance. The museum always has a host of programs and events throughout the year, so make sure you keep up to date - you won't want to miss out!
One day, it could be you up there!
