The Taylor Swift Experience Goes to NYC!

October 18, 2016

The GRAMMY Museum® announced the opening of The Taylor Swift Experience™ in New York's Seaport District, the storied neighborhood in Lower Manhattan being revitalized by The Howard Hughes Corporation®, which has partnered with the Grammy Museum to host the exhibit. Opening Friday, November 18, 2016 at 19 Fulton Street, this will mark the first major exhibit opening for The Taylor Swift Experience on the East Coast following its record-setting Los Angeles showing.

Having originally debuted at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles on Dec. 13, 2014, the 10-time GRAMMY® winner's 25th birthday, the exhibit was expected to close in May 2015, but due to overwhelming response, was extended through Oct. 4, 2015. The GRAMMY Museum's most popular exhibit to date, The Taylor Swift Experience gives visitors and fans an in-depth look at the multi-platinum-selling artist as a singer, musician, songwriter and producer through personal photographs and home videos, interactive experiences, handwritten lyrics of Taylor’s top-charting hits, and iconic performance outfits.

“Debuting The Taylor Swift Experience at our Museum in L.A. was an incredible honor and a huge success for us,” said Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum at L.A. LIVE. “We couldn’t be more excited to get this exhibit on the road for fans all over the world to experience the remarkable singer, songwriter and musician that is Taylor Swift, and we’re so thrilled for New York and the Seaport District to be the first stop on this tour.”

“With entertainment being a central component of the revitalized Seaport, we are pleased to partner with the GRAMMY Museum in bringing The Taylor Swift Experience to the Seaport District,” said David R. Weinreb, Chief Executive Officer of The Howard Hughes Corporation.
