Next month on the 14th of November the GRAMMY Museum® in Cleveland, Mississippi will officially open becoming only the first GRAMMY museum to be opened outside of Los Angeles.

Similar to its sister museum — the GRAMMY Museum at L.A. LIVE — GRAMMY Museum Mississippi will be dedicated to exploring the past, present and future of music and the cultural context from which it emerges, while casting a focussed spotlight on the deep musical roots of Mississippi. The Museum will feature a dynamic combination of public events, educational programming, engaging multimedia presentations and interactive permanent and travelling exhibits, including a Mississippi-centric display that will introduce visitors to the impact of Mississippi’s songwriters, producers and musicians on the traditional and modern music landscape.

Built and operated by the Cleveland Music Foundation — a non-profit organisation developed in 2011 — the 27,000-square-foot GRAMMY Museum Mississippi will be housed on the campus of Delta State University, home of the Delta Music Institute — Mississippi’s sole accredited music industry studies program.

The reason for placing the museum in Mississippi was because of the musical heritage of the state and the surrounding ones. Bluegrass, country and jazz are just three of the musical styles that emanated from the southern states and the GRAMMY Museum in Cleveland will complement the musical tours that you can make when you holiday in the southern states of the US.
