GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi Presents The Taylor Swift Experience™ Opening March 3, 2017

CLEVELAND, Miss.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

The GRAMMY Museum®’s most popular exhibit to date, The Taylor Swift Experience™ will open at GRAMMY Museum Mississippi in Cleveland, Miss., on March 3, 2017, two days before the Mississippi Museum celebrates its one-year anniversary.

AT&T is the official sponsor of The Taylor Swift Experience in Mississippi. Most recently, AT&T unveiled Taylor Swift NOW, a new video experience created exclusively by AT&T and Taylor.

Curated by the GRAMMY Museum at L.A. LIVE, The Taylor Swift Experience gives visitors and fans an in-depth look at the 10-time GRAMMY®-winning artist as a singer, songwriter, musician and producer through personal photographs and home videos, interactive experiences, handwritten lyrics of Taylor’s top-charting hits, and iconic performance outfits including her custom-made Atelier Versace romper worn earlier this month at the DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night concert in Houston, Texas.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our one-year anniversary than by hosting this incredible exhibit paying tribute to one of the most legendary artists of today,” said Emily Havens, Executive Director of GRAMMY Museum Mississippi. “After showings in Los Angeles and New York we are thrilled to bring her story to Cleveland, Mississippi, only a few hours away from her hometown of Nashville, where Taylor began her recording career.”

On display through Aug. 13, 2017, the exhibit will feature:
