Summer is in full swing, and whether you live in Michigan or are visiting on vacation there are unique and fun experiences you can have that will create wonderful memories.
A top rated attraction in Detroit that you may have never considered is the Motown Historical Museum. America fell in love with Motown sensation like The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, The Jacksons, and The Temptations. Artists like these were an integral part of music history who have left a legacy that musicians will look to for inspiration for decades to come.
While Motown has become the moniker for the whole style of music, it began as a record label in Detroit, started by Berry Gordy Jr. The Gordy family’s contributions to music history in Detroit are proudly on display at the Motown Historical Museum.
When you visit the museum you can literally step into history, as you have the opportunity to stand in Studio A where some of your favorite albums were recorded by world class artists.
You will see artifacts, photographs and exciting memorabilia in the beautifully preserved record label and Berry family home.
According to the MoTown Museum website the mission of the museum is
“to educate and motivate people, especially youth, through exhibitions and programs that promote the values of vision, creativity and entrepreneurship. To build awareness of the global impact of Motown and its artistic contributions to entertainment.”
The museum is always closed on Mondays and is only open on Sundays during the summer, but all other days of the week it is open from 10 am to 6 pm except for major holidays. Admission to the museum is $8 for children and $15 for adults.
