  • This is truly an outstanding museum on every possible level. Plan on at least 3-4 hours, and be sure to walk through Johnny Cash's bus outside (included in your ticket). It was my second visit in 10 y...  more »

  • 4 stars is strictly for the museum. Pretty cool if you like music/ and the history behind it. It's worth checking out if you are in the Greater Cleveland area. I took a star off because right from the get go I got hassled by few employees because they weren't familiar with a ticket service I've purchased. It was unnecessary to cause a small scramble and overreacting to the whatever the tickets were. Why did I have to explain myself where I purchased these tickets via work discounts? (Benefit hub + Ticket monster) I think it's very clear the rock and roll organization should retrain some employees about service to customers, especially first timers. Rock on, Mark
  • Growing up near Cleveland I got to experience the rock hall for years, and as a fan of rock and roll it is amazing to be able to walk through and see the inspirations of bands past and present. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is not only an amazing piece of art in itself it stores so much art, history, as well as love of music through the ages. I always suggest to stop and check it out if you are in Cleveland just visiting or have never been. It is a one of a kind experience that only Cleveland Ohio can offer
  • Recently I visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland with a friend who was up from Florida. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed all that the Museum had to offer, so much to see and yes learn while you are visiting. There are videos to watch that ad so much to your experience of being there. The exhibits are displayed well and some with video and audio. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the place to see if your a Rock and Roll music lover. I was there many years ago but things constantly change and so do the exhibits, making for a much better experience to enjoy. The view of Lake Erie is so peaceful and comforting. This is truly a five star attraction and worth taking the time to see.
  • I was in Cleveland last month and an obvious stop was the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The museum itself is pretty unique-looking from the outside, and any music lover would probably be a fan of this place. The exhibits are vast, with rotating exhibits displayed every now and then. I loved seeing some of my favorite musicians' costumes (hey Beyonce! Nice Single Ladies outfit!) and seeing instruments and iconic pieces of music history. Some things I really loved about the museum was the array of David Bowie costumes and all of the Beatles stuff. There is a HUGE selection of Beatles memorabilia and it's really fascinating to see how the band began and how they developed throughout the years. Pop culture addicts should make this a must-do museum. Definitely give yourself ample time to explore and listen to the exhibits since there are several levels in the museum. The gift shop is great too! Overall, a really cool museum and I loved going!
  • Super cool place to go. Have gone 3 different times and always enjoy myself there. Gift shop inside is great. Love the little cafe place inside to eat and can sit outside to help break up the day so you don't feel like your forced to rush through looking at everything.
