Where are we going today?

Music will always play a huge role in life. Some songs instantly take you back to a particular place, or a memory.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is an incredible way for kids to be introduced to the greats of the past, and for parents to take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about what you were doing the first time you heard a particular song.

There are always fascinating exhibits to wander through, featuring not only artists of the past but also of today.

Some exhibits are permanent and draw from impressive and iconic artists and artefacts that inspired them and defined their careers. There are always rotating exhibits too which mean there is always something new to see the next time you visit!

Personal collections are often displayed, showcasing costumes and items from tours, music videos and photo shoots.

Often exhibits feature a particular artists or band, where you can see items from careers which sometimes span half a century!

At the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, you can go on a journey of the history of museum. Where did the inspirations come from? Where did the sounds come from? How have modern artists been influenced? 

What song shaped your childhood? What artist might your kids love from when you were a kid? It's a great way to bond with the kids and let them into your childhood. Then can then in turn share how music affects them. It's such an important part of life, and something that brings people together.

A wonderfully musical journey!

    Same type of displays as any Hard Rock that you've seen.. The theatre was cool with 3 screens showing the inductees by year. $47 for two people. There are 6 levels to view items or videos and you could spend all day there or see what you want in 3 hours or so. You get your picture taken when you queue up to pay but didn't see the cowbell until after we took our picture!!! You can pay for your picture at the end of the tour or order it online after 48 hours. Merchandise is expensive as you would imagine $30-$40 for inductee T-shirts but they did...Read More

    Great displays and great information about the history of rock and roll. Just dont get wound up in who deserves what or where this person should be placed or how that person isnt mentioned. The displays are well put together and its a great experience if you enjoy it for what is there and not try to complain about what...in your opinion...is missing.

    Honestly, this place is really cool. Loved the different exhibits and historical memorabilia. I wanted to rate it five stars, and probably would have if it had just been me and my wife. There is a reason that children under 8 get in free and that is because there is nothing for them to do. The staff is kid friendly though, so if your kids don't mind riding around in a stroller than it is still an awesome place.

    How can you take the R&R Hall of Fame serious , when it's Rock&Roll that is supposedly its theme !
    When they induct ABBA and a Rap Group , but have not inducted Three of the greatest R&R Concert Bands , Incredible Albums and Songs , Performing Bands in the History of R&R ! Not to mention but The Wizard of Rock and Roll must , Yes - The Moody Blues - Jethro Tull are being over-looked and not inducted into the Hall of Fame , again this year !
    I mean , all three were incredible live in Concert and all are approaching 50 years of recording &...Read More

    Claustrophobic nightmare. I left 15 minutes after entering. If you enjoy one way in, one way out, types of places, this is for you. Went down stairs to the first exhibit and got lost in it. There's virtually no exit signs or directional arrows and if you walk the wrong way you end up in another 5 exibits that lead to dead ends. There is no organization or order to follow your way around. And there is poor circulation in there and zero AC. So you smell the 300 other people that are trapping you between the narrow walkways between exibits. So even...Read More

Merchandise is expensive as you would imagine $30-$40 for inductee T-shirts but they did have some sale items (must be last years inventory). Now I have been there and done that so it was all right. Can't stand the fact that Pop, Disco and Rap are included in the Rock and Roll HOF when Thin Lizzy, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, Steve Miller Band and Humble Pie are not in. I suggest they change the name to the Music HOF if they want to let everyone in who isn't Rock and Roll. Parking outside was $10.

I mean , all three were incredible live in Concert and all are approaching 50 years of recording & performing their incredible works of Music , with or without Symphonic Orchestras ! The only reason The Wizard of R&R aka Big Bill Sawyer gave it 2 stars was out of respect for the deserving Inducted members ! It's not their fault The Hall of Fame is Fawlty !

So even if you're lucky enough to find an exit good luck pushing your way past all the smelly fat asses blocking your way.
