motown-museumExpansion plans have been announced for famous Motown Museum in Detroit to make it more attractive to tourists. The museum will undergo a $50-million-dollar expansion starting in 2017.

 

The new Motown Museum will be expanded and built around the current Museum space and the Hitsville USA house to a 50,000 square foot tourist attraction featuring dynamic, interactive exhibits, a state-of-the art performance theatre, unrivalled recording studios, an expanded retail experience and meeting spaces designed by world renowned architects and exhibit designers.

 

Robin Terry, chairwoman, Motown Museum, said: “Our goal is to bring an expanded Motown Museum to the world, to inspire dreams and serve as an educational resource for global and local communities while creating an international mecca of music and entertainment history.

 

“This expanded facility will be an exhilarating national and international tourist destination which will allow us to narrate and celebrate on a much larger scale what the Motown legacy is recognised for: unmatched creative genius that transcends every barrier imaginable by bringing people together from all walks of life to share in that unmistakable Motown Sound.”

 

Motown was founded by Berry Gordy and became one of the most significant musical accomplishments of the 20th century America.
