To celebrate the 15th anniversary of his album, “Trap Muzik,” Atlanta rapper T.I. opened up a unique pop-up trap museum in the hip-hop capital of the South.
The artist took to Instagram to share the big news last year. “I made it a album... but WE MADE IT A GENRE!!!!” he wrote. “This is a celebration of ALL OF OUR CONTRIBUTIONS to the CULTURE WE CALL TRAP MUZIK!!!!”
The Trap Music Museum at 630 Travis Street NW is “a hybrid art gallery and interactive exhibit, displaying realistic scenes that are symbolic of the sound and life style that originated in the ATL,” according to the museum’s official site.
You’ll find childhood portraits of famous artists, from Cardi B and Migos to T.I. himself in “Grandma’s living room” plus 2 Chainz’s iconic Pink Trap House car. Also part of the main exhibit: T.I.’s closet, first raided by police in 2007.
The museum’s general manager, Krystal Garner, told Curbed Atlanta last month the site sees about 6,000 people each week.
“When you go into a museum, you get some historical moments, some cool photo opportunities, and you leave the experience,” she added. “With us, you have actors that all have specific roles that entertain you throughout.”
The museum is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and restricted to adults 18 and up after 8 p.m., but the Escape Room is now open during the week to accommodate high demand.
Entry to the museum is $10 per person. If you also want to participate in the Escape Room, tickets are $30.
Visitors interested in the Escape the Trap Room are asked to reserve tickets online.
