The Grammy Museum

Located in Downtown, this is LA's only museum dedicated solely to the Grammy Awards. Celebrating every musical genre, the museum aims to educate people of all age groups, especially young people, about the cultural importance of music. Spread over four floors, the museum also doubles up as an exhibition center as well as a venue for live concerts, public events and educational programs. Tours to the museum are available as well. From Michael Jackson's tour artifacts and iconic outfits to Backstreet Boys memorabilia, the museum displays prized possessions of the global music industry. A must-visit, you can check the website for more information and a schedule of current events.

Paley Center for Media

This shrine to the media allows visitors to see footage and hear recordings of some of the most memorable events and programs in modern history. The museum has a collection of more than 75,000 television and radio programs, including some well-known commercials from over the years. Visitors can choose up to four segments from the catalogue to watch or listen to at any one time; for example, you could view the Beatles, Elvis Presley, I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners simultaneously. The museum is modeled after a similar structure in New York, established by the former head of CBS Television, William S. Paley.

Huntington Library, Art Collections & Botanical Gardens

The Huntington, the former home of a railroad tycoon, is many things—an extensive library filled with rare books, a large art collection containing numerous European prints and paintings, botanical gardens of almost unmatched splendor and a forum for regular lectures and other activities. You will also find a fine bookstore, cafe and tea room on the grounds. Come and wander through the 150 acres of colorful gardens, lily ponds and beautiful sculptures. The rare books and manuscripts in the library include some of the earliest editions of Shakespeare's works, a copy of the Gutenberg Bible on vellum and the Ellesmere manuscript of one or more of Chaucer's greatest works. Please note reservations are required in order to visit and prices vary depending on the day of the week.
