Paul Cox/MW CreativeA new museum devoted to Tina Turner is scheduled to open on September 26 in Brownsville, Tennessee, near the small town of Nutbush, where the rock and soul queen was raised. The Tina Turner Museum will be housed in the restored Flagg Grove School, the one-room schoolhouse the singer attended as a child, which was moved to the site of the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in 2012.

The museum is fully sanctioned by Turner, who donated a variety of previously unseen memorabilia to the facility, while her personal team had input into the creation of the exhibit. The attraction will feature stage costumes, video and audio, as well as commentary that Tina personally contributed.

The Delta Heritage Center’s executive director, Sonia Outlaw Clark, says a number of Turner’s childhood classmates will be in attendance at the opening, which will begin with a press conference at 10:30 a.m. CT. The museum will be open to the public starting at noon.

The opening will kick off the 2014 edition of Tina Turner Heritage Days, an annual two-day celebration of the singer that’s held in and around Brownsville. The event includes a variety of Turner-related activities, including walking tours, a photo contest, a tribute contest, and a fan gathering and picnic.
