The Motown Historical Museum might be no bigger than a small house, but it’s rammed to the rafters with musical memorabilia (don’t miss the Jackson Five’s psychedelic bell bottoms). In the 1960s, this was ‘Hitsville USA’, and today you can grab a microphone and cantillate to your heart’s content in the famous ‘Studio A,’ on the same spot where the likes of Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder stood decades before, belting out their mega tunes.
