AAA Editor Notes
National Museum of African American Music is at 510 Broadway. This museum chronicles the contributions of African American music to American culture with 56,000 square feet of exhibits including artifacts, clothing, memorabilia and technology.

Guests begin their journey in the Roots Theater where a short film about the history of Black music in America sets the tone. From there, the Rivers of Rhythm corridor offers large interactive touch screens and an animated timeline that links American history with American music history. The music continues as it guides guests through such galleries as Wade in the Water (the history, influence and survival of religious music), Crossroads (chronicles how blues changed the music world), A Love Supreme (a look at the history of jazz), One Nation Under Groove (documents the history and influence of rhythm and blues) and The Message (tells the story and evolution of Hip-Hop music and culture).

For an additional dollar, guests can receive an RFID bracelet to register with their email address. While moving through the museum, they can hold the RFID bracelet over each interactive station's sensors to save playlists and videos to enjoy at home.

Time: Allow 1 hour, 30 minutes minimum.
