I try and visit the Rock Hall at least every other year when I’m in Cleveland to visit friends. I find the layout easy to navigate, the staff friendly and helpful. I absolutely love the exhibits and the history and always come away from a visit having learned something new.

On my last visit they had a 3D movie on U2 that was fascinating and thoroughly engaging. I absolutely LOVED it! I highly recommend visiting this museum.

We visit the Rock Hall at least once per year and recently joined as members. The layout is user-friendly, and the Hall itself is easy to find in downtown Cleveland. The special exhibitions, like the recent one on the Grateful Dead, are worth the visit. There are many hands-on activities and multimedia experiences like the current U2 3-D movie. Even if you're not a rock and roll fan, the pop culture history displayed here is fascinating.

Interesting and fun this museum. Too bad you're not allowed to take pictures, of the original Michael Jackson Thriller jacket for instance.
Lots of music that takes you back memory lane.

I couldn't stop smiling from the minute I walked in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! The memories that the music brought back. It was just amazing! From the history of Rock and Roll to the present it was an outstanding presentation of the music and the musicians of our time. From Little Richard to Elvis, Janis Joplin and Bruce Springsteen it was all here. The clothes, the cars, the guitars.....The video presentations were great but I especially loved the final one on the inductees. Your only complaint when you leave is you will probably believe someone you love should be in the Hall of Fame and has yet to get nominated. (Like Luther Vandross)
Don't miss it when you are in Cleveland. For that matter, make it a point to get to Cleveland to see not only the Hall of Fame but Science Center right next door and their amazing Aquarium.

The cost is $22 per each adult and if you like music you will love this and think it is well worth it. There is so much to see that you really do not know what to see first and just how much time to spend at each exhibit. The memorabilia such as guitars and the exhibit of the perfumers costumes were outstanding. They had videos going on of the stars. You really could spend hours there and not see it all. It really was a wonderful surprise and worth beery penny to see. They had ROCK.and ROLL from all over the world. NO PHOTOS ALLOWED INSIDE!
