A chronologically order gives a more cogent approach to attacking the 7 stories of the exhibit. The lower level gives a really comprehensive review of early influences of Rock n Roll, the early start, and then gives an overview by decade and by city. So, if you wanted to see just the Los Angeles scene in 1980, you could spend time there; London in the 1970's -- you could do that. Selected memorabilia from various artists are highlighted, with guitars, drums, costumes, record covers, contracts, fan mail, autographs, ticket stubs, back-stage passes, records, photos, videos, and even a car from Elvis Presley. There was a large "Wall", a remake of the Berlin wall used in one of the concerts by Pink Floyd. There is a 2 story special exhibit showcasing 50 years of Satisfactory: a tribute to The Rolling Stones. Many interesting historical facts and figures are presented. Even though Rock is not quite my thing, I feel much better informed. Many of the exhibits have video, which makes it a challenge to see everything or get through all of it in a reasonable amount of time. Perhaps if there were better guides or maybe even an audio-guide (Duh, it is a music museum) to help you get a better idea of what to see. The Beatles exhibit had a "why were the albums made" video, which was really instructive.

My husband and I took our two teens, 17 and 19, to the Hall second week in July. We both enjoyed looking at all the displays but our two kids were finished sooner and were ready to go before we were. Of course, at age 54 both of us had heard of most of the people in the displays, and lived through their careers, but our kids had not. So, their interest was not the same as ours. I would recommend the visit for adults but people with kids, beware that they may start saying "Can we go yet?" when you are still reading about the life and times of these artists. Since they are teens we just said go sit in the lobby and wait for us. We got our discounted tickets from CAA/AAA before we went to the Hall.

To park for only $6.00 go to the parking lot near the submarine (the sub is in the lake). A short 5 min walk and you save the bucks.

As an old die-hard rocker, I loved experiencing all of my history all in one place.

Yes, it was a bit kitschy and not cheap ($22 a ticket), but it was a great trip and wonderful to expose my 15 year old to the world I grew up in!

Where else would you have everything in one place?

This is place is almost overwhelming. There is so much to see and HEAR. Video and memorabilia are everywhere and seemingly unending. Whatever your age or music taste this place has something for you. Really enjoyed the short film and film clips of the performances and the artist. Could have easily spent a whole day going through the Hall. If you are in Cleveland this is must see!
