Celebrating the spirit of music, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame features displays narrating the story of some of the most influential performers, producers, and other professionals in the music industry. Designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei, the building rises above the shores of Lake Erie, featuring a mix of geometric forms and cantilevered spaces, with a 49 m (160 ft) tower supporting a triangular structure often described as a glass tent. A top landmark in the city, the building houses a store, cafe, and over 5,100 sq m (55,000 sq ft) of exhibit spaces. Stop by to learn the secrets behind some of rock and roll's most successful acts, such as the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and the Rolling Stones.

Road trip down from Canada with teens in tow. The building was beautiful and we received a warm welcome. Thoroughly enjoyed “educating” our boys on the roots of rock and roll. So much to see we could ... more »
Very interesting multi-tiered building. I went during their special wardrobe event, though I wasn't completely sure what stuff was added or if everything lived in the exhibit as is and they just made an event around that aspect in particular (it was a discounted event and they had a game to be a part of where you could win swag). I do wish they included more photos of the performers in the wardrobe on display and perhaps more interactive bits, but overall it's a very clean and well-run museum. I loved the Theatre viewing portions, they were very well done.
Quite interesting, any rock music fan should make their way here at least once in their lifetime. 80% of the exhibits are on the first floor (or Floor 0, in their parlance,) but some of the remaining floors still had interesting memorabilia. We made it through in about 4 hours at a leisurely pace, so don't plan on staying all day unless you really like reading a lot. Also, the souvenirs are seriously overpriced, really, $32 for a T-shirt worth $15 on a good day anywhere else? Sorry.
