Ever wonder what it takes to be a GRAMMY winner? Explore musical beginnings and more at GRAMMY Museum Experience, an interactive collection of exhibits located inside the Prudential Center offering visitors a hands-on experience that takes them along the journey to winning the coveted award.

Opened in mid-October, the museum pays tribute to homegrown singer/songwriters including Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston, and more. Learn about the musicians whose voices and talents put New Jersey on the map musically.

The GRAMMY awards have undergone subtle differences over the years.

Speaking of “the Boss,” E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg provides visitors a chance to try their hand at playing “Born in the U.S.A.” with his help in an exhibit, which mimics an “in studio” experience. Fans won’t want to miss this exclusive lesson from a legend.

Percussionists of all ages can make their own music through Roland Live. A major innovator in electronic musical instruments, Roland teamed up with the museum to create a veritable sound laboratory where you’re both the eyes and ears of the performing and recording artist.

An interactive drum exhibit allows percussionists of all levels to test their rhythm.

Rap along with three-time GRAMMY Award-winning artist Wyclef Jean, a former member of the New Jersey-formed music trio, the Fugees. Using touch-screen interactivity and one-of-a-kind film footage, visitors sing with Jean to his GRAMMY-nominated single, “Gone Till November.”

See how music and the artists who create it have evolved from one decade to the next.

And The GRAMMY® Goes To … celebrates past GRAMMY winners with film footage that highlights memorable performances and acceptance speeches. From Rihanna and Madonna to Bob Dylan and Ray Charles, you’ll be awe-struck all over again.

The traveling exhibit “And The GRAMMY Goes To…” was on display when the museum opened on Oct. 20.

Whether you’re an artist or a fan, you’ll find something inspiring within the GRAMMY museum.
