“Can't miss.”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Take at least 5 hours to really engage with history; remarkable permanent collection and all things Grateful Dead plus guitar displays and films...too much to say, just go and give yourself a treat.

“Long Live Rock and Roll!!”

We were there all day, had a ball! We weren't expecting to have as much fun as we did but hey--we lived it, we enjoyed it and we enjoyed visiting it! Thank you Cleveland!

“Musical history tour of Rock 'n Roll music.”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Starts out with the musical roots that became Rock 'n Roll. A true historical walk through the ages of this genre of music. Some videos, some artifacts, clothing, letters, albums and the stories behind the music and the performers. You can't help but get into the music. If you are really into this music spend the day, if you like it a little spend a few hours...

I don't believe that I have ever spoken to anyone who had visited but didn't really enjoy their time there. Also close to the Great Lakes Science Center and Browns Stadium so you can spend a day on the lake.

“Rocking in the Hall of Fame”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Perfect stop for our teenaged son and his friend. We were delighted with the exhibits and memories. There is something of interest for every age--all you have to love is Rock and Roll!

“Rock & Roll Hall of Fame”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My wife and I stopped in on our way back to Toronto. We thought that 3-4 hours would be plenty of time. We were wrong. I could easily have spent 2 full days. So much to see, I would loved to have watched the live (recorded) performances in the theater...fantastic sound and clear video! I agree with other comments about not taking young children there however our 20 and 22 year old sons would have loved it. As well the waterfront in Cleveland is very nice. We ate on the outdoor patio which is 3 or 4 stories high...great view of the water and small airport. Food was o.k. but a bit more expensive than eating elsewhere. (but not out of line). Will definitely visit again next year.
