Your visit to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum helps fund our efforts to educate the world on the social significance of rock and roll. Like the music we celebrate, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is alive with the energy, passion and the spirit of music. The 150,000 square-foot museum features seven floors, four theaters for films, special events and free public programs and ever-changing exhibits - plus, you can even rent the Rock Hall for a special event. Tour at your leisure. You can spend as little as an hour, or up to an entire day exploring all the Rock Hall's exhibits. There are many other worthy Cleveland attractions for you to enjoy during your visit to the North Coast, but this is the premier destination for the history of rock and roll! Photography encouraged!

Was terribly disappointed in this visit. Huge Led Zeppelin fan and there was nothing there!!!! They supposedly had JPJ's bass but did not see it. I've seen more in the Hard Rock Cafe's around the world than in this place. Again just my own opinion, I would not return.

It was much better than I expected. They did a very careful job of organizing your visit so that you understand how this style of music evolved from elements of early jazz, country, mountain & gospel influences, to name a few. Having had rock & roll explode on the music scene, while a high school student brought back lots of... More

This was our first trip to the Hall of Fame and wont be our last. Located right on the waterfront of Lake Erie, it was easy to get to from Akron. Not a lot of signage about parking, but easily found parking for a small fee ($8) on the pier area. I will say it was great parking that allowed... More

I like music but I guess I'm not as into it as most. It was good to see some of the collectibles. There's only so much guitars I can see. But it was good to go and experience. Didn't really get the train video they show you when you get there?

It is exactly as you would expect, and there is lots to see. We got in with a military discount which saved a few bucks. If you are a student or have other discount options it is worth asking about. Very entertaining, but if you aren't into the music scene you may get bored after a bit. There is a... More

Loved every moment here but its my thing. My wife however wasnt enthusiastic but its not her thing. In my view its a bit Marmite, you love it or hate it depending on your music! I could of spent many more hours here as many people do. Top Marks, thanks to all at Hall of Fame for a great visit

I had a great time walking around experiencing so much of rock history. I learned a lot about the history that I didn't know and it was fun to see the personal items of such great music icons. I loved being able to see the hand written notes from people like Springsteen, Bono and Dylan. I only had 4 hours... More

The whole day is needed to see it all, and to really experience it properly - make sure to bring your camera and walking shoes as you will be standing/walking most of the time. If you love rock n roll or just music, this is a must see. I was so amazed at what I learnt and saw. The displays,... More

I went to see David Bowie's performance costumes, which were very cool. There are some strange-and nifty- things, such as Lennon's glasses from when he was shot, Lennon and Yoko's bed posts, report cards of some singers, and more. I loved the jazz/blues exhibit which explained how rock n' roll came to be.
