WELCOME TO THE
NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSIC
The National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) is set to open its doors in late 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee. The 56,000-square-foot facility will be an anchor tenant within the urban development known as Fifth+Broadway located in the heart of Music City. It is the only museum dedicated to educating, preserving and celebrating more than 50 music genres and styles that were created, influenced and/or inspired by African Americans, including spirituals, blues, jazz, gospel, rhythm and blues (R&B), and hip-hop. Using artifacts, objects, memorabilia, clothing and state-of-the-art technology, each of the museum galleries is designed to share a different narrative and a unique perspective on African American music and history. The museum will tell the story of how a distinct group of people used their artistry to impact and change the world.
