The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville will open its Taylor Swift Education Center on Saturday (Oct. 12).

Taylor made it happen when she gave $4 million to the museum, the largest single donation from an artist ever, The Tennessean reports. The newspaper says the center was originally set to open next year, but the museum got it done ahead of schedule.

The two-story center has three classrooms, a “learning lab” and a children’s exhibit gallery, which opens next year.

Taylor will be on hand for the grand opening, which will be the start of a busy weekend in Nashville for T-Swizzle. She's also set to get songwriter/artist of the year from the Nashville Songwriters Association International—for the sixth time—on Sunday night (Oct. 13).
