In early 2021, the National Museum of African American Music joined the ranks of Nashville’s many premier music history institutions. Covering the evolution and impact African Americans have had on American music, this museum guides visitors through a timeline of influential eras of music.
Using elements like large-scale graphics, interactive exhibits, and soundscapes, this vibrant museum brings to life the history of spirituals, gospel, blues, jazz, R&B, and hip hop music. Through large, geometric exhibit walls, NMAAM shows the many facets and aspects of music through the lens of influential African Americans. We are thrilled that NMAAM now calls Music City home.
