  • Great experience! I loved the lower level with the history of Rock n roll. If you read & take time to do all the multi media experiences it will take 1 full day just to go through the history on the 1st level. Wheelchair accessible & accommodating staff. Some displays are higher & I couldn't see without help. I would ask staff to take a pic so i could see & read the display. Awesome gift shop. Cafe had great coffee & variety of food
  • There are so many displays in here. I really enjoyed it. My favorite was the rolling stone display. There is a cafe if you want lunch or coffee. They also have a really cool gift shop. I did go on a day though that the Cleveland Browns where playing and wasn't happy I ended up having to pay $35 for parking.
  • I drove from Pa to visit here. This is a nice, informative place about the world of music. However the building itself is confusing. They could of had the layout better. If you're not careful, you could miss things. But overall a nice museum. I would go again. The price wasn't bad either. And they offer discounts for college students and military. Definitely would recommend.
  • BRING YOUR OWN SNACKS! We didn't try the food & nobody else was ordering it either. My husband tried their food previously & was very disappointed. NO "STANDARD" FARE (like hot dogs & normal snacks). You can't sample all the music in one day. Exhibits change/close regularly. 3D theater was, unfortunately, removed. It IS an very cool place to visit. However, $24 per person seems expensive for only 2 floors of exhibits.
  • This is Cleveland visiting must see! There is so much history inside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame it is definitely a place you can spend hours at! Even if you are not very interested in Rock and Roll music, the elements of the museum are awesome to look at and there is way more inside to check out than it appears to be on the outside.

Where to stay in Cleveland

Most of Cleveland's hotels are located in downtown, though you can also plenty of comfortable and affordable rooms in the city's outlying neighborhoods. Many downtown hotels offer discounted weekend rates and deals that include tickets to some of the city's major attractions, but if you prefer to stay away from the central part of town, consider the neighborhoods east of the Cuyahoga River. Staying in this part of Cleveland allows you easy access to the city's cultural district, renowned for its museums, galleries, and parks.
