Country Music Hall Of Fame Expansion – CMA Donates 10 Million Dollars
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is running out of space and they need to grow to include the artists of today and tomorrow.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has launched a $75 million capital campaign that will finance the museum’s 200,000-square-foot expansion. With the new addition, the museum will double in size, from 140,000 square feet, to more than 350,000 square feet, tripling the existing exhibit space and adding additional archival storage, an 800-seat theater and a new educational center.
We’ve just learned from CMT that the CMA is donating 10 Million Dollars, the largest donation in the Hall’s history. The CMA is able to donate to charities throughout the year thanks to revenue generating events like the CMA Music Festival.
The new building will feature an educational center that includes a children’s gallery, classroom spaces and a recording studio; additional exhibit gallery and archival storage spaces; an 800-seat theater; an expanded retail site that includes Hatch Show Print; and much more. The expanded museum will be integrated into a downtown campus with the Music City Center and the Omni Hotel; the museum’s six-floor addition will unite the museum and the Omni Hotel on three levels, allowing the two entities to share space and facilitate visitors’ movements throughout the campus.
