Trap Music Museum Is Bringing A Pop-Up To Miami
Trap Music Museum is a celebration of trap culture. While many see it as just a chance to take viral Instagram photos in front of super dope activations, the museum is actually way deeper. It’s an ode and celebration of a music genre that got its roots in ATL.
After getting such great feedback and demand, the creators and curators decided to turn the movement into a permanent installation in Atlanta in 2018.
Now, those in and around the Miami area can check out “Lil Trap House”, a 6-month pop-up version of the Atlanta museum with a Miami twist.
“We decided to set up Lil Trap House in Miami’s historically Black Overtown neighborhood,” Krystal Garner, general manager of Trap Music Museum, told Travel Noire. “This is a neighborhood that has gone through revitalization over the years, so we wanted to bring something to highlight and bring awareness back to the rich Black culture responsible for making the neighborhood what it is.”
Trap Music Museum partnered with other Black business in Overtown, to ensure this 6-month pop-up would truly be beneficial to all those set-up in this particular corridor.
“It was the perfect place to pour into. Overtown is a community that is for and by the culture.
For those who visit Lil Trap House Miami, get ready to be blown away. Yes, you will get all of the vibrant and likely viral photos you desire. But, you will also be educated on the history and significance of trap culture and music. There will be exhibits paying homage to Miami legends such as Rick Ross, The City Girls, and the Slip-N-Slide movement. You will also find things celebrating the pioneers of trap music.
“There is also an educational aspect to Trap Music Museum,” William Sparks head of strategic partnerships for Trap Music Museum and founder of BAM! Creative, LLC told Travel Noire. “We are also highlighting the history and impact that certain artists have had. During this pop-up you can also expect a few surprises that we can’t mention just yet.”
To keep guests safe, COVID-19 protocols will be in place. Visitors must sign a waiver prior to entering, masks are mandatory as well as temperature checks. There will be a limit of 5-10 people in the museum at one time.
For now, you can either reserve a slot in advance or walk-up. For those who walk-up, please be mindful that there may be a wait if the museum is at or near its limited capacity.
The Miami museum will be open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday only. To learn more about what you an expect or to purchase tickets in advance, visit: www.liltraphouse.com. You can also follow along on social media: @liltraphousetmm.
