    The Rock and roll hall of fame is amazing. A must-visit when coming to Cleveland. It brings nostalgia, inspiration, and excitement. One thing though- bring your own lunch because the cafe is not good.

    Fans can easily spend a full day or more here. Plan to spend lots of time on the first floor where the bulk of the exhibits are, then a few hours on the rest of the floors. Incredible stuff!

    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.

    I didn't think I would enjoy this very much because I only knew a few artists, but learning about everything from the history of rock and the inspiration and listening to the music is so fascinating!

    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.

    Great place to kill sometime; even if you don't want to drop $20 to get in, you can still see displayes and there is a really cool park behind the muesum! Right on the lake!

    I was here in 1999 last and wasn't sure if I wanted to pay again $22 for this museum. Well, I did and turned out to be a great decision. It's bigger, better, more interactive. Glad I came. Rock on!

    A beautiful building w/a lot of information about the origins of Rock and Roll, although I feel the Native American contribution was not added.

    If you are a Rock fan this is a must do on your list. Could spend the entire day here getting lost in all the great history and artifacts. The videos produced in house are outstanding.

    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.

    If you are a music lover of any style not just rock and roll you need to do this at least once. Things from Michael Jackson's Thriller jacket to alot of handwritten lyrics and a tons of other stuff.

    Marines are everywhere – even in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The Everly Brothers were one of the first 10 artists inducted into the HOF, and they proudly served as Marines in the mid-1960s.

    Do your research before you go. The exhibits change and the museum is very large. When I went, Johnny Cash's tour bus was on display outside. You will see new things each time you visit.

    I had a pretty good time here but there weren't many options for food. Eat before you come and apparently don't bring a camera, no pictures. Besides that, amazing Beatles exhibit.

    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!

    Make sure you visit. It is well worth the few hours walking around if you love music and music history.
    HISTORYJuly 19, 2010
    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.”

    Did you know? Because rock&roll evolved from earlier genres, it's difficult to pinpoint the first rock record -but many think that it was Jackie Brenston and Ike Turner’s “Rocket 88,” recorded in 1951 Read more

    Seeing Michael Jackson's glove got me right in the feels. Amazing collection but a few snubs: nothing from KISS, Beach Boys or Madonna. Unsure why Fallout Boy is included. Special exhibits are fun!
