Motown Legacy

As an irresistible force of social and cultural change, the legendary Motown portfolio made its mark not just on the music industry, but society at large, with a signature Motown Sound that has become one of the most significant musical accomplishments and stunning success stories of the 20th century.

Discover The Legacy

Like many other African Americans in the early 20th century, Berry Gordy, Sr. and his wife, Bertha Fuller Gordy, came North from Georgia to find a better life for themselves and their family.

Gordy Family

Motown is an extended family of some of the most iconic and influential artists, musicians and songwriters of our time. Brought together by destiny through their love for making music, they found themselves making history.

Motown Artists

The culmination of years of planning, hard work and generous contributions from dedicated donors, the highly anticipated, $50 million Motown Museum expansion project will grow the museum campus to a 50,000-square-foot world-class entertainment and education tourist destination.

CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY

We do not knowingly market to or solicit information from children under 13 without parental consent. We recognize that protecting children’s identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents.

Internet safety for children. The Internet is a public network. Children’s access to the Internet can allow them to visit inappropriate Web sites and be exposed to unwanted risks. COPPA, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, protects children under the age of 13 from the online collection of personal information. Learn more about COPPA on the Federal Trade Commission’s Web site. Parents can be proactive by installing filtering software that gives them more control over their family’s Internet experience.

Cyber ethics for children. Cyber ethics is the practice of being a good citizen on the Internet superhighway. Children should understand the rules of the road, too. Learn more by visiting the U.S. Department of Justice’s kids and youth Web site Children’s Online Privacy.
