Songbook Exhibit Gallery

The Great American Songbook Foundation exhibition space on the Palladium’s Gallery Level attracts thousands of visitors each year with informative installations of text, photos and artifacts related to the history of popular music.

Most items are drawn from the Foundation’s own Songbook Archives & Library, which preserve more than 100,000 items from the collections of America’s greatest composers, performers and other musical figures. An interactive multimedia display enables visitors to see, hear and learn more about these legendary artists.
