We’re thrilled to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Motown Museum and Hitsville USA with the ceremonial groundbreaking of Phase 1 of the museum’s expansion.
Known as “Hitsville Next,” Phase 1 is a renovation of three historic houses where Barry Gordy, Jr. created his innovative music empire. The houses will host new educational initiatives, youth programs, and community outreach programs in the arts and entrepreneurship—and will begin doing so as early as next year, even while construction is underway.
We’re teamed up with Detroit’s Hamilton Anderson Associates, the architect of record, on the design and construction of the expanded museum campus. When complete, it will commemorate the label’s history while also serving as an incubator for new music.
