I cruised through the museum. Other people could probably spend hours there! Very well done, from the architecture of the building to the displays. Only annoyance was trouble parking, and then I had to pay for it. Enjoy.

Prepare to spend a full day here. Fascinating memorabilia from all eras of rock and roll.

Rock Hall.

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.

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.

July 2015: Tipster Melissa sez: "You CAN take pictures there (just no flash photography)."

Rock Hall - Alan Freed's Ashes

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.

Rock 'n' Roll will never go quietly to its grave!
