National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) is Open in Nashville Tennessee

The National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) opened its Nashville Tennessee doors to the public in January 2021.

The goal is to preserve and celebrate the many music genres created, influenced, and inspired by African Americans.

Many of the great Black musicians and singers have come from or through Tennessee and the National Museum of African American Music honors them for their creativity and their importance to music and musical innovation. Black music has been the catalyst from much of the county’s best loved sounds.

The NMAAM explores an impressive 50 genres and subgenres of music through five different galleries. Learn about everything from call-and-response spirituals to work songs from the 1600s and on to the musical instruments that played jazz in the 1900s and up.

Tennessee is one of the country’s best music destinations. Not only does music flow from the clubs and cafes, but it is filled with museums honoring the music of America. Chattanooga’s Bessie Smith Museum, Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame, Grand Ole Opry, and Musician’s Hall of Fame, Memphis’ Graceland, Stax Museum of American Soul Music, and Sun Studios, the NMAAM is a welcomed addition.

Open daily, except closed on Tuesday, from 9 AM to 5 PM. Tours run every half-hour. Visits are by timed tickets and it is advised to bring your printed or your e-ticket with you so as not to delay your entrance. The museum is ADA-compliant.
