This is a fun stop, sort of like a garage sale where you can't purchase anything but you can't go wrong with a recent history of Americana.
The movie displays were great, the place was large and roomy, never felt rushed or crowed looking at anything.
Main display is on the first floor with "featured" content on the other floors. be sure to check out the features before you make plans.
No photo's but they didn't stop you from bringing your camera

What can I say. As a musician and music lover, I was in heaven. From the giant stratocasters leading into the entrance to the thousands of artifacts, this is something not to be missed. Revealing the beginning of Rock N Roll via blues artists to Alan Freed who mainstreamed the term, you will be in awe of everything. Guitars from major rock stars, stage outfits, handwritten songs, cars, featured artists, the British Invasion, theatres and videos - too much to mention. Plan to spend the better part of the day here - you may want to walk through twice !!

Cleveland Rocks! Unfortunately, you wish that it did not cost so much to do so! At $22 a person, it is steep. I found that the fact that you do not get to take any pictures while in the exhibits, extremely frustrating. These people and their music and artifacts really matter to people and if they are on display, they should be able to be photographed. People are paying a pretty penny to see these goods, I can see and totally agree with not recording anything, but to take a picture of a lyric sheet, or Michael Jackson's white glove? Come on, make it work for people. The organization could be better, with more signage regarding where stuff is, especcially on the inductees level. The parking near the area is reasonable, but just adds to the cost of the $22 to get in. There is an overpriced cafe on the premisis. I would not pay for the food there for sure. There are additional exhibits that you have to pay extra for also. The prices made me frustrated, especially with the limited. If in Cleveland and you like rock music, go, but be prepared to overpay like a festival concert!!

We flew to Clvlnd only to visit the R & R Hall of Fame and it was so worth the money and time we put aside for it. Would recommend!
