If you’re a big enough music geek to wonder who the members were in Elvis’ band or who the session musicians were on the Rolling Stones’ “Sticky Fingers,” this museum may interest you, but it will be a stretch for the general public. The low-tech museum showcases stories of artists throughout music history and their instruments. The GRAMMY Museum Gallery® located inside is a little more advanced, allowing people to experience what it’s like to be on that stage, to play instruments (with headphones), to sing along with Ray Charles, and to get in the booth and record or DJ. The interactive exhibits are interesting (when they work), but they presume a level of familiarity with the instruments that not everyone has. Special exhibits also cost more. Consider checking Groupon before you purchase tickets.
