GRAMMY Museum Mississippi officially opened its doors to the public on March 5, 2016, in Cleveland. It is dedicated to exploring the past, present and future of music, and the cultural context from which it emerges, while casting a focused spotlight on the deep musical roots of Mississippi. The 27,000-square-foot GRAMMY Museum Mississippi is housed on the campus of Delta State University, home of the Delta Music Institute — Mississippi’s sole accredited music industry studies program.
Although it’s been open for only eight months, the presence of a Grammy museum has added a luster to the entire region’s tourism package. In addition to many international visitors, the museum is expecting to serve 20,000 to 24,000 school children the first year.
Psalm 116:12-14 (ESV)
What shall I render to the Lord
for all his benefits to me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation
and call on the name of the Lord,
I will pay my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all his people.
We thank You, Lord, for all the benefits You have bestowed upon the Mississippi Delta. We thank You that the Mississippi Delta is the birthplace of music. We thank You for the increased tourism in Cleveland.
On beholding the glory of the Lord, we all, with unveiled faces, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. We thank You for this gift from the Spirit. We pray that the Mississippi Delta will go from glory to glory, producing more and more music to the glory of Your name. Amen.
