At more than 44,000 square feet, the new museum features displays of memorabilia and photos, video displays and interactive experiences, all in tribute to a musical legacy spanning more than 50 years. George’s wife Nancy, who put years of effort toward the museum’s creation, says, “I was so touched to see how all of George’s friends came out tonight. George always thought he didn’t have any friends and he’d tell me to build a museum but no one would come. Well, here we are, and everybody came!”
