History of the Music Museum

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Lenzs4 on October 24, 2004

Located across the street from the Grand Pacific Palasades is the History of Music Museum. It was $5 for adults and $3 for kids. It is very quiet and hidden if you do not know it is there. We went just to burn some time and found it was good for hours of fun and entertainment.

You enter through a gift shop, and it is divided into era's. The items inside show how the instruments evolved over the years. They have interactive displays that play music from the era. The adults loved the old videos that showed the evolution of rock, from The Beetles through MTV's latest. The last room was the kids room. They have hooked up several instruments to headphones so the kids can play and have fun without distrubing anyone else. We played the drums, electric guitar, piano, synthesized machines, and more for hours. Each day the kids begged to go back. This is a hidden, unknown MUST-DO.
