Free advice from travelers for a great Cleveland vacation.
Celebrated rock legends--bands, songwriters, producers and deejays--are honored in Cleveland's one and only Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. The I.M. Pei-designed glass building dramatically overlooking Lake Erie holds treasures that range from Jimi Hendrix's handwritten lyrics to Tina Turner's memorable concert costumes, plus a variety of concert posters, ticket stubs, stage gear, handbills and much, much more.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum just underwent its first redesign since opening in 1995 and includes several new exhibit spaces, including the world's most comprehensive Beatles exhibit; state-of-the-art interactive technology and lighting; improved way-finding; and hundreds of new artifacts, a number of which are on display to the public for the first time.
In addition, the Rock Hall invites you to check out the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's Library and Archives in downtown Cleveland. The Library and Archives is the most comprehensive repository of materials relating to the history of rock and roll, housing vast collections of books, periodicals and commercial audio and video recordings, as well as hundreds of archival collections containing personal papers, business records, photographs, posters, audio and video materials.
