The GRAMMY Museum will reopen its doors to the public after its closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday, May 21. Museum members will have special preview days the prior weekend on Saturday, May 15, and Sunday, May 16. During the first phase of reopening, the Museum will follow guidelines provided by L.A. County for museums and open at limited capacity to maintain social distancing.

The Museum will open with three new major exhibits, Dave Matthews Band: Inside and Out (on view through fall 2021), Y Para Siempre… Marco Antonio Solís (on view through spring 2022), and the previously announced Motown: The Sound Of Young America presented by City National Bank (on view through winter 2021). Additionally, the Museum’s This is Nat King Cole exhibit has been extended (on view through fall 2021).

“We’re thrilled that the day has come that we can reopen our doors and welcome our community back to the GRAMMY Museum,” said Michael Sticka, President of the GRAMMY Museum. “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.”

The Museum is taking active measures to maintain a safe environment for guests including new health and safety protocols such as limited capacity, advanced timed-entry online ticketing, required face mask-wearing, mandatory temperature check, a touchless visitor experience, enhanced and more frequent cleaning and sanitizing protocols, one-way paths through the Museum floors, social distancing marks, hand sanitizing stations, and more. The Museum’s Clive Davis Theater, where the popular public programs are held, remains closed until further notice for evening programming but will be open during the day as part of the Motown exhibit for special film viewing. Online advanced ticket reservations are now available.

The Museum will celebrate its reopening with a members-only virtual event taking place on Thursday, May 13 at 5:30 pm PT. A Reopening Celebration with the GRAMMY Museum includes a recently-recorded interview and performance with Brandi Carlile and a first look at our new exhibits. This is open to any current Museum member or new member that signs up by Wednesday, May 12.
