  • Had a great time at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Overall the exhibits were very nice but what made the visit really terrific was the staff. Many were clearly Rockers themselves and they seemed to kno...  more »
  • It was $26 per person to get in- the actual exhibits were on one floor and took about 1.5-2 hours to look at at it all. The museum had a little bit of a lot of things but not much of one thing. It was...  more »

  • Lots of GREAT exhibits, and famous articles, not just throw aways! The cafe had top quality food at a price you'd expect to pay at a decent restaurant. Drinks were a bit high. All the videos we watched were captivating, and very great to listen to. Some editing was a little too quick. Every employee interaction was nice, and one even explained how to get free tokens for the rock themed pinball exhibit. Will definitely return!
  • You cant see it all in one day unless you rush through. So much to stop and read. So many great displays. This place is definitely worth stopping for! Note I had a hard time finding the RV lot for parking. It is actually behind the Browns' stadium towards the lake. Once found though it was very convenient to the Hall of Fame.
  • Was not sure what to expect... worried that it would be a forced walk through a plastic experience. Couldn't have been further from the fact! This place is well worth the price of admission. Great displays... unique building... fun atmosphere. Music holds so many memories and this place reminds you of that fact. And when you're hungry, their cafe had delicious, unique food selections at a very reasonable price.
  • This was an awesome experience, everyone that worked there was really nice and into their job. It was interesting to see all the displays of the people you are a fan of and grew up with. I would like to give a special thanks to the lady that gave my son a Green Day pass from their induction day because we were looking for more exhibits for them. Also really enjoyed the love music. Look forward to visiting again!
  • This place is awesome. The exhibits are numerous and detailed, making it enjoyable for a music history buff. Each level offers different sites, from artifacts and stories, to interactive recording studios. The hall plaques are nicely displayed and quick to see them all. The rock experience was particularly engaging, with highlights of some the best induction ceremony performances. You have to visit this place if you're in the Cleveland area.
