A self-guided Museum tour immerses students in a cutting-edge experience — complete with interactive exhibits, films and artifacts designed to explore the historical, cultural and social context of music. Upon entering the Museum, students are engaged as they learn about the creative process and the art and technology of recorded sound. 

Museum Tour + Workshop

Workshops at GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi cultivate critical thinking while engaging students. These interdisciplinary workshops evoke further exploration and extend learning outcomes for students before and after they explore our exhibits.  These interactive workshops infuse music with MS State Content Standards and serve as a springboard for further investigation.  Education programs with special guests offer students the opportunity to explore a variety of music careers, hear artists' stories first hand, and meet industry professionals.  These workshops need to be booked in advance.
