Two Hours in New York City: GRAMMY Museum Experience If You Love Music & Pop Culture

So you’re traveling for business and you've got two hours or an afternoon to spend in New York City.  We don’t usually recommend something we haven’t done ourselves and we haven’t had a chance to see it yet; but one of our best suggestions is to spend your afternoon at the new GRAMMY Museum Experience.  It sounds like it’s well worth it to make the trip across the river to New Jersey.

 For Travelers Who Like:  Music, Pop Culture, Fashion

Where to Go:  The new GRAMMY Museum Experience is located in the Prudential Center at 165 Mulberry Street in Newark, New Jersey, right across the Hudson River from downtown Manhattan.  Take a taxi or an Uber through the Battery Tunnel to Newark.   Go to www.GRAMMYMuseumExp.org for days, times, and details.

What Makes It Special:  It’s been described as “a glamorous and interactive storehouse of exhibits, memorabilia, and multi-media centered on the GRAMMY Awards and its 59 year history of recognizing music’s best”. 

 If you like music, history, or just the history of music, check out the exhibit called “And The GRAMMY® Goes To”.  You can learn how GRAMMY winners are chosen and see film clips and photos of GRAMMY’s most noteworthy performances, red carpet moments, and acceptance speeches. Love fashion?  You’ll enjoy seeing the high fashion gowns and outrageous outfits that were worn by stars and pop culture icons like Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and Kanye West.

 The New Jersey Legends exhibit spotlights rare memorabilia from famous artists who got their start in the Garden State, from Frank Sinatra to Springsteen to Bon Jovi to Sarah Vaughn.

 Make See, Must Do:   If you do your best singing in the shower or love karaoke, don’t miss the interactive experiences that let you rap along with Wyclef Jean of the Fugees, sing Ray Charles' “Hit the Road Jack”, or play “Born in the U.S.A.” with legendary drummer Max Weinberg of the E Street Band.
