    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.”

    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.

    Go to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and see the clothing, instruments, pictures, hand written lyrics and other special exhibits that shaped Rock and Roll's history.

    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!

    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.

  • Jake S.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Very nice collection of posters, especially psychadelic ones. There's a few from very famous graphic artists such as Wes Wilson famous for his poster for the Byrds. A must see for graphic designers.
