The Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum Reviews & Ratings
Was a cool experience. Parking was a little tricky. Towards the right there are nothing but meters with handicap only stickers so that was odd. And the Parking lot at the end of the pier has an older gentleman who isn’t interested in helping says you need to pay for the amount of time you want to stay in advance. Usually you pay when you leave. Pretty odd. Ended up parking all the way down across from First Energy stadium - at least you get a discount if you get validated. The front is beautiful for pictures. The tour wasn’t bad. I know a lot about rock and roll so didn’t learn too much. The gift prices are out of control, but the food area prices were reasonable. Worth it especially if you are just visiting Cleveland.
Top quality museum in all respects. Great interactive sections. Great food in the cafe. Extensive product selection in the shop. Co- located next to other museums in a very nice section of Lake Erie lakefront. Stunning Pei architecture design. Clean and safe.
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?
Good time, price is a little high . My wife and I had a good time. The history was great, the videos were awesome. You should stop and play music with the in house players. Looked like a lot of fun, but I don't play well enough for me to try that. But maybe you can 😀
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.
