Address Motown Museum 2648 W Grand Blvd, Detroit, MI 48208, USA

A true music institution, Motown Museum was home to the very first Motown headquarters.

In 1959, Berry Gordy bought an old photography studio. Then called Tamia Records, his label soon expanded in order to cope with the success. During the following years, Motown occupies seven neighboring houses in Hitsville U.S.A.. A real empire that Berry Gordy relocated to Los Angeles in 1972. The historic building now houses a museum dedicated to Motown artists. You can admire a black Fedora and a studded glove offered by Michael Jackson as well as the famous Steinway grand piano on which so many hits were composed. The Motown Museum is one of Detroit’s most popular tourist destinations.
