The Taylor Swift Education Center will officially open to the public this Saturday, Oct. 12.
The center, which gives the museum seven times more space, includes three classrooms, a learning lab and an interactive children’s gallery slated to open next year.
A “petting zoo” will allow young visitors to test a variety of instruments, and songwriting workshops, dance classes and a Hatch Show-led letterpress program are planned for the center’s future.
Taylor’s pledge of $4 million to start the Taylor Swift Education Center remains the single largest donation by an artist in the museum’s 46-year history.
