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.

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.
