We're Getting a Bob Dylan Museum
The Bob Dylan Center is set to open in Tulsa in 2022
Published May 12, 2021Bob Dylan is set to be honoured with his very own museum. While in the works for some time, the Bob Dylan Center announced today that it will be open to the public on May 10, 2022.
The three-storey Dylan museum is opening in Tulsa, OK, and it will house more than 100,000 exclusive artifacts from Dylan's long and storied career. This includes items such as handwritten lyric manuscripts, previously unreleased recordings and film performances, rare photographs and more.
One of those items is the earliest-known version of "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," which Dylan recorded at his friends' apartment in the autumn of 1962. You can now download the song courtesy of the Bob Dylan Center.
Conveniently enough, the centre will be in the city's Brady Arts District near the Woody Guthrie Center.
Today's announcements comes some five years after the George Kaiser Family Foundation bought the sprawling Bob Dylan Archive, which first arrived at Tulsa's Center for American Research at the Gilcrease Museum.
