  • The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was created in 1983. Cleveland was chosen for the location because of disc jockey Alan Freed, who was known for promoting the new genre called Rock and Roll.
  • They don't let you take pictures once you're inside.
  • It's the VIP room every musician wants to get into. This music mecca boasts a remarkable roster of icons, whose costumes (like MJ's glove), handwritten lyrics and other relics are displayed.
  • There is a hiphop wall on the lower flr near the michael jackson glove...its small but amazing!! Don't miss it
  • The Rock Hall's Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction exhibit opens May 24, 2013!
  • Reserve most of your time for the first floor, don't rush through it! The rest of the floors are interesting, but first is definitely the best!
  • If you're planning on going more than once, consider getting a Membership. Most of the Membership Fee is tax deductible, and pays for itself quickly. It's also great to have when out-of-towners visit!
  • We are the world's only museum devoted to rock and roll: the foremost cultural movement of our time.
  • Check out the childhood drawings of Jimi Hendrix and the stage outfits of many artists.
  • Students get a discount (with ID). Tix $17
  • Great place to visit
  • New exhibits, new programs, live performances and of course, the world's largest single collection of rock and roll memorabilia.
  • In 1995, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame opened its permanent home, after going without since its inception in 1983. Archiving and preserving music history for nearly 30 years, the Hall is a treasure.
  • Staff is very rude and tickets are overpriced. Not coming back again, not worth it. I can get more of my money's worth on Wikipedia and iTunes.
  • If this is your first time, check out all of the 1st floor memorabilia. Be sure to return if one of your favorite artists is the featured exhibit; the museum does a great job on the features.
  • It is by far an experience one shouldn't miss. It was a bucket list item I would do again....
  • I know its only Rock and Roll, but I like it !!!
  • You're sure to find Soul Train veterans honored here including Ike & Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Al Green and Aretha Franklin among many others.
  • I enjoyed this museum of all the greats that we're fortunate to be inducted here. - Penina Mezei
  • Amazing museum even if your not a fan of rock and roll. It set up in a way where you see everything. 6 floors of fun history info and memorabilia. The staff is very enthusiastic. 22 a person.
