One of L.A. LIVE's most popular spots is the Grammy Museum. It's more than just a look at the music industry's biggest award. The music world has a new home in Downtown Los Angeles. The Grammy Museum at L.A Live offers more than just a look into music's biggest award, it's a one-of-a-kind musical experience. Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli took us on a tour, highlighting interactive activities and exhibits such as Michael Jackson's white suit from the "Thriller" album and Elvis's first guitar.

"Having the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles is a natural," said Bob Santelli, executive director, the Grammy Museum. "And there's a couple of reasons why. First, Los Angeles is home of the Grammy Awards. Not a hundred yards from our museum is the Staples Center, and that's where the Grammy Awards are held each year.

"Number two, L.A. is one of the most, if not the most, important music cities in America, even in the world. Also, by being here, we have great access to the artists. So perhaps more than any other music museum and as a result these artists have been here at the museum participating in our public programs."
