  • It’s the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Anyway this is the main reason we can to Cleveland. I’m not sure what else needs to be said. This place is an easy walk from most hotels, restaurants and bars in.....  more »
  • Had a great time meandering through the exhibits. Lots of of interesting things to see. Unfortunately a good number of exhibits were closed due to COVID.  more »
  • This is a great experience to see the history of rock and roll. Filled with great showcases of artists who shaped music. Fun for the whole family. I believe there are 4 floors, an eating area when you walk in, and a gift shop that could've had much better Beatles shirts... but they didn't. Also, I've been there twice and haven't seen a nice showcase of Queen.... why not?
  • Nice place to visit and this riverfront area of Cleveland is worth a visit. The Rock Hall has exhibits that change so it is worth visiting regularly. We saw The Zombies induction performance on the outdoor stage and it was super fun. I like how they have the main exhibits separated chronologically and geographically. They also had a cool rock band pinball machine exhibit one time that we went and an exhibit all about Pink Floyd’s The Wall another time. Last time we went the changing exhibit area was about rock on television. Definitely worth a visit.
