Fans of Taylor Swift rejoice! The Grammy Museum is putting on The Taylor Swift Experience, which they call their most popular exhibit to date, in the South Seaport District of New York City. The exhibit opened this past November and will stay open until February 19th.
The Taylor Swift Experience is a collection of the singer’s memorabilia, ranging from baby clothes, music video costumes, to one of her grammy awards. Unsurprisingly, the exhibit focuses on the artist’s many successes and ignores the controversies that has followed the singer. Multimedia and interactive presentations are scattered throughout the museum space, including a 360 version of her “Blank Space” music video and a recording studio. Fans of all ages came out to the museum to follow the story of Taylor Swift.
The Taylor Swift Experience welcomes guests with neon lights typical of the style of the singer’s latest album, “1989.”
Mariana Martins De Andrade, of Sao Paulo, Brazil, stands beside Swift’s bedazzled guitar. De Andrade has been working at Disney World for the past few months and is touring New York City before returning to Brazil. “I tried to make my own version with super glue and glitter but I ended up ruining my guitar,” said De Andrade.

The walls of the space are lined with Swift’s five album covers with listings of the awards received and the tour dates.
“I’ve been to thousands of Taylor Swift concerts,” said Zoey Covey Pierre Louis, of Tallahassee, Fla., who stands beside the costume used in the “Bad Blood” music video, her favorite song.
The displays were full of Swift memorabilia. This banjo was from Swift’s Grammy Awards performance in 2012.
One of the biggest items in the exhibit was a custom wave piano from Swift’s most recent world tour.
Jadyn Foster and her sister Madeline, of Orlando, Fla., stand in front of Foster’s favorite dress in the exhibit. “I love Taylor so much. My dad took me here for my birthday today.”
One interesting item in the collection is Swift’s first homemade press kit.
The upstairs section of the exhibit featured an interactive dance floor.
