Joe O’Brien, a partner in the Mall of America entertainment complex, said he reached out to the Grammy Museum in February 2013. Its executive director, Bob Santelli, and board member Jimmy Jam, the Grammy-winning producer/songwriter from Minneapolis, scouted the site a year ago.

“Our hope is the Midwest Music Museum will be an affiliate [of the Grammy Museum], but it’s too premature,” Santelli said in a recent interview. “They have to develop educational programs. And we’ll help them.”

By the by, admission is $7 — or twice what it cost to see the Beatles at the Met.
