EXPLORE THE POWER OF ONE MUSEUM

UNDER A GROOVE

Fall 2020

Scheduled to open in Downtown Nashville Fall 2020, the National Museum of African American Music will be a 56,000-square-foot facility that will encourage visitors to discover the central role African Americans have played in shaping and creating all genres of American music. From classical to country to jazz and hip hop, NMAAM will integrate history and interactive technology to share the untold story of more than 50 music genres and sub-genres. It will be an unparalleled institution, unconfined by record label, genre or recording artist, and tell a unique narrative through the lens of Black music.

As part of our continued commitment to education, NMAAM hosts a variety of events throughout the year aimed at serving the larger Nashville community. Check out our upcoming events, open to Music City locals and visitors alike!
