The GRAMMY Museum aims to educate individuals about the history and cultural significance of American music and to inspire the next generation to explore and create new forms of music using the roots that have existed in this country for centuries. The Museum accomplishes this through innovative programming, cutting-edge interactives, and exciting exhibitions.
On The Red Carpet
Presented By: Delta Airlines
Some of the most significant, iconic — and, occasionally, outrageous — red carpet looks from the GRAMMY Awards’ history all in one place. On The Red Carpet, presented by Delta, showcases original clothing worn on the GRAMMY Red Carpet and on stage, illustrating the glitz and glamour of Music’s Biggest Night. The GRAMMY Awards red carpet has become a place for fashion designers to exhibit their most dazzling designs of the year, generating buzz alongside the highly anticipated performances and award ceremony.
MONO TO IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE ROOM
Presented By: Harman
Wonder what Cardi B would sound like on a gramophone? Our flagship experience room, Mono to Immersive, presented by Harman, takes you on a visual and audible journey of recorded sound from the dusty cylinders of the 19th century to the surround sound of the present as you engross yourself in your favorite GRAMMY performances.
Michael Jackson Display
In October 2009 the GRAMMY Museum debuted Michael Jackson: A Musical Legacy, the temporary memorial display that was launched following Jackson’s death in June 2009. The Museum’s current tribute to Jackson resides on the fourth floor and features select artifacts that portray Jackson’s career during the time when his hit album Thriller was released. Featured artifacts include Jackson’s trademark sequin gloves and items worn in the music video for his hit song “Thriller.”
Music captures a moment in time. Revisit some of the most memorable moments in GRAMMY Awards® history, from Elton John and Eminem’s powerful collaboration to celebrating the unifying power of music with Alicia Keys, Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Music is meant to be experienced. Our Roland LIVE area allows visitors to experience music from the perspective of the maker. Stand on stage, pick up an instrument, or sing in front of an audience. You’ll never hear music the same way again
