The opening of the Grammy Museum Mississippi in Cleveland will be held on March 5-6, nearly four months later than had been planned, according to a news release issued by the museum on Wednesday.
The museum announced earlier this month that the scheduled opening on Nov. 14-15 would not happen because of the complexity of the highly sophisticated museum on the Delta State University campus forced the decision.
The exhibits were not going to ready in time, a spokesman said.
The 28,000-square-foot facility will be the most technologically advanced music museum in the world, Emily Havens, executive director, said in an interview earlier this year. It will feature a recording studio and an outdoor amphitheater.
Ground was broken on the $19 million project in June of 2013.
