Visitor Tips and News About Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum
I knew I would need more than one day so I planned for two days to go through the Rock Hall. Am I ever glad I did! The first day, I looked at the exhibits; the second day, I saw the films and revisited my favorite things. If you are planning a trip here, trust me, buy the two day pass. Also, go on line to see what special exhibit they will have.[Toni, 08/19/2011]
There's plenty of eye-candy ... someone figured out that if you can't stuff legendary rock stars and display them behind glass, the next best thing is to exhibit their outrageous stage outfits.
I felt ripped off. I went a few years back with an ex g/f. It was disappointing that you could not take any pictures. You would think that the rock hall would be fun, but it is pretty dull.[Joe, 03/19/2009]
On the top floor of the Rock Hall, Norm N. Nite and other famous oldies DJs do live broadcasts out of the "Alan Freed Studio" for Sirius satellite radio. You can watch them spin records through a glass wall. In a creepy side note, an urn containing Alan Freed's ashes is housed under glass across the room from the studio for rock'n'roll fans wishing to pay their respects.[Mike, 03/01/2009]
Rock 'n' Roll will never go quietly to its grave!
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum is housed in a beautiful building, a 5-story pyramid that hangs over Lake Erie in the "cleaned up" area of downtown right next to the new Cleveland Browns Stadium and the Science Museum. When I first entered and found out that it was $14.95 a person, I was a little stunned, but believe me, it is worth every penny! We spent over 5 hours there and did not really spend enough time on everything. The only bummer is that you cannot take any pictures or video anywhere in the building. But, there is an outstanding 180 degree film presentation on the 159 current inductees, a historical review of rock, costumes and memorabilia you wouldn't believe from Michael Jackson's rhinestone studded glove to Elvis's army induction papers. We were very impressed and plan to return again in a few years.[Tom Drews, 08/01/1999]
