Nashville’s Opry Mills will be the home of a new Madame Tussauds wax museum in spring 2017.
The museum will boast Madame Tussaud’s first music-themed attraction, “Soundtrack Of America,” and will celebrate iconic musicians past and present. Included in those waxworks are Carrie Underwood, Stevie Wonder, and Johnny Cash, along with 45 other figures.
This attraction will provide a historical walk through America’s musical past and present with vivid scenes supporting the colorful cast of figures. Madame Tussauds is owned and operated by global leisure giant Merlin Entertainments plc (Merlin).
“We couldn’t be more excited to open the first Madame Tussauds in Tennessee in a little over a year,” Ben Thompson, Merlin’s senior marketing director of new openings and acquisitions, said in a statement. “This fun and unique attraction will highlight milestone moments from historical to contemporary music — both from around the country and in Nashville.”
”Opry Mills has always been a top tourist destination in Music City,” said Gregg Goodman, president of The Mills, a Simon Company. “We are beyond excited to be the home of the first-ever music-themed Madame Tussauds. The team at Merlin is sure to deliver a project that will exceed even the wildest of expectations.”
Madame Tussauds has U.S. locations in Hollywood, Las Vegas, New York, San Francisco, Washington and Orlando, Fla.
