After over a year of being closed due to the pandemic, the Grammy Museum is opening its doors to the public with three new major exhibits starting May 21.
“Dave Matthews Band: Inside and Out” will be on view through fall 2021, “Y Para Siempre… Marco Antonio Solis” will be open through spring 2022 and the previously announced “Motown: The Sound Of Young America” will be on display through next winter. The museum also announced that its “This Is Nat King Cole” exhibit will be extended through the fall.

On May 13, the museum will celebrate its reopening with a virtual members-only event featuring a recently-recorded interview and performance with Brandi Carlile and a first look inside the new exhibits.
During the first phase of reopening, the museum will adhere to L.A. County’s guidelines and limit capacity to maintain social distancing. To ensure a safe experience, the museum will offer advanced time-entry online ticketing and increase sanitation measures as well as require masks and a mandatory temperature check upon entry. Additionally, first responders, healthcare workers and essential workers will receive free admission through this June.
“We’re thrilled that the day has come that we can reopen our doors and welcome our community back to the Grammy Museum, including free admission to first responders, healthcare and essential workers through June 2021 to show our deepest gratitude,” said Grammy Museum president Michael Sticka in a statement. “We have a wide range of new exhibits for visitors to experience, and I’m proud of our hard-working team who has made sure the museum is safe and enjoyable for all.”
