Officials to break ground tomorrow for Grammy Museum

CLEVELAND — The Grammy Museum Mississippi will showcase the state’s role in developing blues, country and genres that shaped American music.

Officials are breaking ground tomorrow for the museum. It will be at the south end of the Delta State University golf course, off of Mississippi Highway 8 in Cleveland.

The museum is scheduled to open in early summer 2015. It will have more than 20,000 square feet and will feature interactive exhibits.

Organizers say that over the past five years, $12.5 million has been raised for the $18 million project. That includes $3 million from the city of Cleveland and $1 million each from the state of Mississippi and Bolivar County.

Gov. Phil Bryant and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves are among the speakers scheduled for the groundbreaking ceremony.
