Several new exhibits in L.A.’s Grammy Museum amaze guests by introducing innovative musical technology


  The Grammy Museum, located in Los Angeles and established as a partnership between the Recording Academy and AEG, boasts 30,000 square feet of the enriched history of music. Comprised of permanent, interactive, and traveling exhibits, the museum captures the essence of musical harmony and the art of the recording process.

   Among these interactive exhibits is a new arrival, called Mono to Immersive. In this experience room, presented by Harman, visitors can marvel at the 360° sound production as they witness their favorite Grammy performances through the sounds of the instruments of the 19th century and digital modern surround sound technology.

   The interactive aspects of this revolutionary exhibit include touchscreens, where visitors can choose their music, headphones for the ultimate immersive experience, and colorful screens that project videos of famous Grammy performances.

   Another new exhibit at the Grammy Museum recreates a symbol that visitors know all too well: the Grammy Red Carpet. Delta presents On The Red Carpet, which showcases the looks of the Red Carpet throughout the history of the Grammy Awards.

   Along with the Red Carpet model, clothing styles and fashions previously worn in Grammy Awards ceremonies by accomplished musicians are showcased along the edges of the Carpet. Musicians such as Alicia Keys, BTS, Rihanna, and other notable performers donated pieces of clothing that were once worn on the Red Carpet and on stage.

  “The outfits that celebrities wear are really extensions of their artistry,” says Michael Sticka, president of the Grammy Museum. “These amazing pieces of clothing that are usually made just for that one night.”

   The museum faculty continues to feel proud of their new exhibit and hopes to attract more visitors in the near future.
