  • For the music people, this is great. There are so many items in the museum as well as the special exhibits. World class! It is perfect on the lake. You can visit the museum and take walk on the path b...  more »
  • Fantastic experience! If I had the time, I'd spend the entire day there and listen to music while learning more about it! 
  • Wow!! what a great experience. I truly think anyone who loves Rock music and it's history should visit at least once!! Glad it was on my bucket list.

  • More like Rock N Roll Hall of Farts. We the high school that won the state footfall title for Vermont went here on a field trip in 1995. I can't believe KISS ain't in this place. More regular rock goes here just to let the hardcore of us out there know this in advance and not be misinformed. You would not have a pleasant rock music experience. Might as well fly into town and enjoy the next state over. Ohio is a little square in my book. Sonny & Cher Elvis Madonna Beach Boys the usual pop is found on the shelves in here. Heavy metal scene is emerging out of Phoenix
  • Absolutely epic place to visit. But, whoever says to allow about, or a little over 2 hours, must only like a few genres of music or very specific hours. But, if love music from classical, country, rock, metal, alternative, grunge, gangster rap, hip-hop, classic rock, r&b, and rap, you will take tons of pics and need allow about 4 hours. There 3 & didn't even make it to 2nd level. Had so many well-known & awesome artifacts like hand written lyrics, music contracts that show how studios rip off artists and even Kurt Cobain's death certificate & Michael Jackson's, John Lennon's memorabilia was epic. So, many great artifacts & snippets of info both from inductees & non-inductees like Beyonce's Super Bowl outfit. Gift shop had reasonable prices & good selection. One tip, a one day ticket is nearly same price as membership which gets free year long admission.
  • Some cool exhibits, but didn't feel quite as awesome as I was hoping it was. I think I was expecting something more like the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit... it's not that. Cool for music aficionados, but it feels a little lacking in some ways.
  • Obviously, if you love rock and roll this is the place for you. I only mildly like rock and I really enjoyed my time here. My grandma, who is a 60's woman, came into town from Texas and we decided we would all go together for the first time and she absolutely loved it.
  • I loved this place. So much history, so many cool things to see. I can't wait to go back
