“`The Detroit building where Berry Gordy Jr. built his music empire reopened its doors to the public . The Motown Museum had been closed since March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“`Gordy Jr. launched Motown in 1959. His late sister, Esther Gordy Edwards, founded the museum in the former Hitsville headquarters in 1985. Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, The Miracles, Martha and the Vandellas, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Mary Wells, and many others recorded hits there before Motown moved to California in 1972.

“`Before entering the building,  guests are asked to complete a health questionnaire and undergo a temperature check. Once inside, only ten visitors at a time are offered a guided tour of the historic building.  To help maintain the recommended social distance, record-shaped decals are scattered on the floor throughout the museum. Still photography, which had been forbidden inside the museum, is now permitted.

“`As expected, visitors are flocking to Hitsville U.S.A.
