The museum exhibits trace the roots of Motown’s remarkable story and chronicle its impact on 20th century popular culture and musical styles. The story begins with Berry Gordy, Jr. and a small house in Detroit that he christened, Hitsville USA (now home to Motown Historical Museum). The story continues as Motown evolves into a major entertainment enterprise that was among the most diverse and influential in the world, introducing such artists as The Contours, The Four Tops, The Funk Brothers, Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, Martha & The Vandellas, Michael Jackson, Rare Earth, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Diana Ross & The Supremes, The Temptations and Stevie Wonder.
