Attached to the famous Prudential Center, it’s the fourth exhibit to open across the United States, with other locations in Los Angeles, Nashville, and Cleveland, Mississippi.

Many of the exhibits display Jersey icons, such as the Whitney Huston and Bruce Springsteen.  Other artists include Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Lauryn Hill. Queen Latifah, Southside Johnny, Melba Moore, Count Basie, Jon Bon Jovi, Wayne Shorter, Kool & The Gang, The Four Seasons, Al Di Meola, and Les Paul. Without a doubt, people who appreciate music will find themselves immersed in the exhibits, which include various interactive opportunities and historical memorabilia.

The grand opening commenced with a ribbon cutting, followed by performances by emerging artists. After the ceremony finished, eager fans made their way through the 8,200-square foot space. As fans exited the museum, they were encouraged to come back after a few months, as the director of the museum revealed that the exhibits will change on a periodic basis. Overall, this museum offers visitors an opportunity to enrich themselves on some of New Jersey’s greatest musicians. Truly, this new museum will attract music fans from all around the tri-state area!
