  • I hate being a negative nelly, but my 3 star rating for the price is being generous. I thought it was expensive for what it offered. It does cover a fairly broad range of material and artists, but I.....  more »

  • We greatly enjoyed the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame - Cleveland, OH. Parking was easy, but cost about $12 for all day. We had lunch at the museum and it was good + reasonable for downtown Cleveland...  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.
  • A beautiful building with unique architecture, next to the Browns stadium + the lake. Well organized exhibits. Well done videos. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Parking could get tricky, but we got there early and luckily found a spot with ease. The shop has a wide variety of reasonably priced souvenirs. All-in-all, an excellent experience. An affordable way to support the arts (assuming you happen to be in Cleveland).
  • This was a cool museum! My favorite part was all the costumes (Jackson 5, Stevie Nicks, Mama Cass, Britney Spears to name a few). Second favorite part were all of the hand written song lyrics - so cool to see songs come to life from the very beginning. The hall of fame highlights video was cool and not too long, nice way to relax for a bit. We ate at food trucks outside which were pretty good!
  • Fun experience for anyone who’s enjoyed “rock and roll” through the years. Nice shop at the end as well to get memorabilia. Easily accessible as it’s in the heart of downtown Cleveland. Definitely worth visiting once. A bit pricey for admission to a museum though, in my opinion. Pro-Tip: if you’re a runner, they have a half marathon, relay, 10k, & 5k race in August. If you sign up you’ll get a free admissions ticket with your race entry.
