Grammy Museum Mississippi Opens at Delta State University

CLEVELAND, Mississippi — The Grammy Museum Mississippi opened March 5 in Cleveland, extending the reach of the original Los Angeles museum and expanding its mission to highlight the distinctive music of Mississippi.

“We are excited to extend the museum’s mission into Mississippi, while placing a much-deserved spotlight on the state’s music history — the cradle of American music,” said Bob Santelli, executive director of the Grammy Museum.

Built and operated by the Cleveland Music Foundation, the 27,000-square-foot Grammy Museum Mississippi is on the campus of Delta State University, home of the Delta Music Institute, Mississippi’s only accredited music industry studies program.

The museum will feature a combination of public events, educational programming, multimedia presentations and interactive permanent and traveling 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.
