The Country Music Hall of Fame celebrated the grand opening of the of Taylor Swift Education Center Saturday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The country music star pledged $4 million to fund the center, the largest single donation made by an artist in the Museum's 46-year history.

The 7,500 square foot space covers two floors, and features three classrooms, a learning lab, and a state-of-the-art exhibit gallery for children.

Museum officials say the new center will allow families to make meaningful connections to country music.

Taylor Swift's six Nashville Songwriters Association International awards will be displayed in the new addition. She is the youngest artist to ever receive the award.

Swift has previously loaned the Museum dresses, costumes, and instruments. Her multimedia exhibit debuted in 2010 and has remained one of the most popular attractions.
