DETROIT (CelebrityAccess) – Detroit’s Motown Museum announced this week that it has received a boost of more than $2 million towards its expansion plans, reports The Associated Press.

The museum received a $1.3 million grant from the Kresge Foundation (which also gave the museum $160,000 in 2016), $500,000 from The Elaine & Leo Stern Foundation, $225,000 from AARP and $55,000 from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, according to AP.

The museum is located in the same location company founder Berry Gordy launched his music empire nearly 60 years ago, and the expansion will be built around the existing museum.
