Accordions of the famous.

Polka Hall of Fame and Museum

Cleveland style polka is a Slovenian type that differs from Chicago style (Polish) or Milwaukee (German). Local hero Frank Yankovic is prominently featured and deemed to be the most famous Cleveland style polka musician.

A 15-minute video explains the history, and the lady running the place was very helpful and enthusiastic about the topic. Great place to see if visiting the area and understanding local flavor. The building is the old Euclid city hall. The softball museum upstairs is separately run and was not open when I visited.

We should point out that this is the Hall of Fame and Museum for Cleveland-Style Polka, which differs from Czech-style or Bohemian-style. Cleveland is known as "The Buckle of the Polka Belt."
