The Grammy Museum will soon be opening its first east coast location. The 8,000 square foot museum will be located in Newark, New Jersey, and is set to open this fall.
A portion of the museum will be dedicated to local museums, and it will also feature a new exhibit called “And the Grammy Goes To…”
Bob Santelli, the executive director of the museum released a statement about the new addition.
“As a New Jersey native who’s grown up with artists like Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen, both of whom put this state on the map, I am thrilled to partner with the Prudential Center to bring the Grammy Museum Experience to Newark. This is where my love for music started, and this is also where my career started, so I’m most looking forward to the opportunities this will afford the young people and students of New Jersey.”
The museum will also offer educational opportunities for children to learn about music and interact with musicians.
