Hitsville USA

I don’t know how I had never visited the Motown Museum before. It’s been around since just before I was born, nestled on Grand Blvd in the heart of Detroit, a monument to the incredible music that flowed from our lovely city.

Ruti and I went and checked it out (along with a million other people who bought the Groupon) a few weeks ago, and found it to be wonderful.

The two houses that form the museum include Motown Studio A, the original offices of the company, and the apartment of the Gordy family who owned the business and lived upstairs. The tour guides sing and dance, and it is totally worth the wait. (You have to stand in line a bit because a tour is the only way to see this compact but amazing little gem.)
