Do you have a music lover in your family? Then a visit to the Grammy Museum is a great way to spend a day learning all about the history of music and enjoying time together as a family. With four floors of exhibits to browse, there is sure to be something to amaze and delight everyone in your group, leave a lot of time to enjoy the more than 30,000 square feet of exhibits.
The Grammy Museum is like taking a walk through the history of popular music, including the art and technology, the recording process and, of course, the Grammy Awards. When you enter the museum, you’ll start at the first floor, which has a series of audio/visual displays to set up your expectations for the rest of your adventure. Then you head up to the fourth floor and work your way down.
The fourth floor is a great intro to the content of the museum. Check out the Songwriters Hall of Fame Gallery with lots of video highlights and features with all the legendary songwriters. Or visit one of the four Enduring Traditions Pods, with lots of artifacts, imagery, and other icons from the biggest names in American music history.
As you work your way down the floors of the museum, be sure to check out the In the Studio exhibit, which is an interactive experience that gives you the inside look at what the music recording experience is like. The second floor is home to the 200-seat Clive Davis Theater, which gives you a behind the scenes look at the actual Grammy Award Show, filmed during the 50th Annual Grammy Awards. Of course no visit to the Grammy museum is complete without a trip to the museum store for a few souvenirs of your memorable trip.
A look back through music history like this is made perfect when you can bring your whole family along in the 2013 GL550 SUV from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. Its roomy enough for your whole family, but you still have that great Mercedes-Benz style and elegance so you’ll all be sure to love the drive to the museum. Plus, you’ll even have room for all those souvenirs you are sure to pick up while you are there.
