Motown Museum

Motown Museum

The Motown Museum, often known as “Hitsville USA” because of its famous sign, is a tiny shingle-clad structure that housed the studio where the “Motown sound” was created from 1957 until 1972. The real recording studio where Marvin Gaye and others created hit songs, as well as the apartment where Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr. resided with his family, are open to the public.

The museum tells the tale of the recording studio and the pivotal years in Detroit’s ascent to prominence as the origin of some of the world’s most famous songs. Call early to book your spot on the tour; tickets sell out quickly.
