Motown Museum

$2 off Regular Admission!


The Motown Museum, founded by Esther Gordy Edwards in 1985, is one of Southeast Michigan's most popular tourist destinations. Visitors from across America and around the world come to experience Studio A, where their favorite artists recorded hit after hit, and to view the restored upper flat where a young Berry Gordy lived during the company's earliest days.

Through the support of individuals, and corporate and foundation partners, we protect, preserve and narrate the deep cultural, social and historical significance of the Motown legacy, a Detroit export that serves as an example of the grit, work ethic, and entrepreneurial vision that are all part of Detroit's spirit at its absolute best.

Motown Museum is excited to partner with Zipcar and offer a discount of $2 off the price of regular admission.
