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!

If you like music you could spend a lot of time wandering in this place. It was a fun way to spend a couple of hours. Interesting to watch all the negative reactions to rock and roll by the media, churches and congress.

Visited in July 2014. We had a wonderful time and got to see many neat exhibits. The place is the mecca of Rock and Roll history. From early influences, famous DJ's, local (Cleveland) acts, and the all time greats of music. You will see actual instruments, clothing, song writing notes, artifacts from the performers personal collections. Stop by one of... More

I moved to New Jersey as a new teenager in 1955, entering junior high school just as rock-and-roll became rock-and-roll. In other words, I was present at the Creation. We teenagers were told our music was stupid and evil, and we felt it was up to us to defend rock from the attempts by a lot of adults to repress... More

Good place to visit if you are in Cleveland and a music fan...the setup is frequently adjusted depending on the theme.

We spent over 5 hours discovering and re-living. What a great time. Elvis came alive again! Learning about early influences was a special treat.

I had my doubts that the R&R Hall of Fame could live up to its hype -- but it far exceeded my expectations! I can honestly say that this was the pinnacle of my one-week visit to Ohio. The building architecture is awesome and a perfect design for the "rock and roll" vibe. The inside layout is very well done,... More

What a fun place! Relived some memories & learned lots about music! FUN! We loved getting the idea of the different sizes of the performers - most are so tiny, but some are tall! The view of the lake was a great addition to the place!

What a cool place! The exhibits are engaging and the artifacts they have are INSANE! We spent three hours there and didn't even see everything. I recommend taking a good chunk of time there so you can see everything.

I thought that there could have been more variety in the exhibits. I understand that they change the exhibits frequently, but in my opinion there were some exhibits that could have been smaller (Elvis, Jimmy Hendrix, Rolling Stones) to allow for more variety. It was interesting, but I would not make a special trip to visit there.
