With the privacy of headphones, visitors can play electric drums, keyboard, bass, and guitar, or sing along with Ray Charles and the Raelettes, the all-girl group who provided backing vocals for the legendary musician. For those interested in what goes on behind the scenes in the studio, exhibits for songwriting, engineering, and producing allow museum attendees to get in the booth and see for themselves what it takes to cut a record. There are also interactive exhibits for singing, recording, and DJing, and a recording studio and rehearsal room for those who want the full GRAMMY recording experience. The GRAMMY Museum Gallery is a permanent exhibit in the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum; one ticket allows access to both exhibits.

About the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum

From rock to country, the Musicians Hall of Fame celebrates the achievements of musicians from virtually every decade since the golden era of studio recording, starting in the 1950s and from every corner of the country. Each section of the museum exhibit space focuses on an important city in the history of American music -- including but not limited to Detroit, Los Angeles, Muscle Shoals, Atlanta, Memphis, and, of course, Nashville -- and explores each area's contributions. The museum focuses on the session musicians who may not be well known to the public but played on thousands of iconic albums, from Jimi Hendrix to Hank Williams, and influenced many facets of the industry. An annual induction ceremony and concert honors new members, nominated by the American Federation of Musicians and other music industry professionals, and ensures the continued growth of the Musicians Hall of Fame.
