The Taylor Swift Experience Headed to NYC

Swifties rejoice! “The Taylor Swift Experience,” a traveling exhibit that features all things Taylor Swift, is headed to the South Street Seaport.

The exhibit, which Swift helped to curate, features things like the pop megastar’s handwritten lyrics, family photos, concert and video outfits, and childhood mementos, will open at 19 Fulton St. on Nov. 19, where it will stay until February 2017.

The Taylor Swift Experience debuted at the Grammy Museum in December 2014, just in time for her 25th birthday, and it was the museum’s most popular exhibit ever. Since then, the exhibit has traveled around the country, giving fans an in-depth look at the Grammy winner’s career trajectory as a singer, musician, songwriter, entrepreneur, and style icon. Some of the items on display include:

  • Handwritten lyrics from Swift’s hit song “22”
  • Her banjo used during her performance at the 54th Grammy Awards in 2012
  • The “Silver Sparkle Guitar” used during her performance of the National Anthem before the 2008 World Series
  • The guitar she played during her first world tour in 2009
  • A letter Swift wrote to the crew of her first headlining tour in 2010, and her sketch for the set design of that tour
  • Official props from the “Shake it Off” video


Tickets are $9, and can be purchased via Ticketmaster. Fans can get a look at the Taylor Swift Experience here.
