60's Throwback Shopping Tour

Take a trip back in time! Remember the Beatles vinyl albums, Turkish taffy, malts, Pez, hippie beads and locally-owned, cozy bookstores? We will drive down “memory lane” and visit shops that will take you back like Sweeties Big Fun, Loganberry Books on Larchmere; in Coventry Village neighborhood, visit Record Revolution, Tommy’s soda fountain, City Buddha & Passport to Peru. Time permitting, we can visit Alan Freed’s Rock ‘n Roll jukebox tombstone in Lakeview Cemetery.
$375.00 per adult

I was looking to take advantage of museums offering free admission on Martin Luther King Day and decided to stop here. I've been by many times and was curious but uncertain how much someone not of the Jewish faith would get out of the experience. The answer: quite a bit. The museum isn't particularly big--there's only one floor, with much of that taken up by a theater, a lobby, and a gift shop--but the exhibits are top notch. I marveled at the beauty of the religious artifacts, was fascinated by the history of the Jewish people during Cleveland's formative years and cried my way through the Holocaust remembrance. I appreciated that the special exhibit-in this case, the life and accomplishments of Leonard Bernstein--was included in the price of admission, though even if it hadn't been, it would've been worth paying extra to see it, as it was very comprehensive, informative and well put together. I wound up spending a lot more time in the museum than I thought I would and learning quite a bit. I highly recommend everyone check out the Maltz Museum for themselves.

One of the best museums in Cleveland and Ohio! Go! It is a top 5 must do in the area! Have brought so many people from out of town here and they loved it too. Leave plenty of time to go through it. A few hours at least.

Right now they have a Leonard Bernstein exhibit which is excellent. There are guided tours but we went on a Wednesday night and had no crowds and plenty of time to enjoy not only this but wander through the rest of the museum. It took about an hour to see the Bernstein. Do go!
