Home to the museum’s award-winning educational programs, the Taylor Swift Education Center offers a fun space for unique hands-on experiences connected to the museum’s content. Three classrooms, a videoconference lab, an interactive gallery, and more create an exciting learning environment for all ages. Open during museum hours, the education center also features youth art installations and special artifact cases. With programs that include curriculum-connected activities for school groups, tailored programs for toddlers, afterschool workshops for teens, and book talks for curious adults, the Taylor Swift Education Center is a special dedicated space where visitors of all ages can experience the culture of country music.
Students from Cane Ridge High School and Nashville School of the Arts created works inspired by country couture designer Manuel. Students toured the museum to view a selection of Manuel’s signature costumes. They heard him tell his personal story and they learned about his creative process during question-and-answer. Among the wisdom he shared, Manuel told the students that he gives his clients what they do not know they need. Students took this advice back to their classrooms to create inspired costume designs.
