NASHVILLE, Tenn. (OSBORNE) -- The National Museum of African-American Music has officially taken possession of its new space at Fifth and Broadway.

 

Mayor David Briley and Museum President Henry Hicks signed the official lease agreement during a press event Thursday.

 

With construction of the building nearing completion, museum President Henry Hicks says his team can now start filling the interior.

 

“And turn what is now an elaborate shell into a world class, interactive, state-of-the-art, educational institution and play-place that’ll make the base drop in Music City.”
