    Wonderful experience.
    Amazing exhibit. We went on the "Beatles Friday", in August. The "Mechanics" played an outstanding two hour Beatles tribute. They were awesome. Advise you prepay for tickets online to get in faster, or show up around 10-11am for the best parking and quick entry. We stayed from 10am-5pm. Rockin' good time. Wonderful crowd. All around great experience.

    Definitely worth a visit
    Both my wife and I wanted to check out the hall of fame although to be honest my expectations were not very high. We were both very pleasantly surprised and truly enjoyed our visit. The lower floor exhibits are full of memorabilia from all eras and we learned something new about the origins of rock and roll. There is truly something for everyone here and the featured artists are from across the decades. We spent about 2 hours and that was adequate time to see what we wanted to see. One could certainly spend longer as there is quite a bit to see. We would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area.

    So worth the lifelong dream!
    What can I say that hasn't been said already? It was a lifelong dream come true for me, and it didn't disappoint. Don't go on game day, it's right next door to the football stadium. We parked at the Science Center Parking Garage and it was easily within walking distance. There are numerous picture opportunities outside, and around back. Like others, I was not impressed with some of the exhibits (hip hop and rap? IT'S NOT ROCK AND ROLL). I understand they have to rotate their exhibits, but I hated that we didn't see anything for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, as they were the main reason I wanted to go. Elton John, The Doors, Prince, etc, had very small exhibits (2-7 pieces), where Taylor Swift had numerous pieces. Gag. There were a good handful of pieces we skipped (Billie Eilish does NOT belong next to Jimi and Janis. She doesn't belong there at all!). Don't skip any floors or videos, and do NOT miss the concert experience in the closed room. We didn't eat at the Cafe (who wants a tomato basil grilled cheese. Give me a cheeseburger). The prices were outrageous, as were the prices in the gift shop. But you have to buy something in there, it's a sin not to. We will be back someday, to see new exhibits.

    Never to old to love Rock and Roll
    This was my 4th trip the RRHF. I would recommend it to anyone that loves the history of different genres of music. They continually update the exhibits, so going back is always a new adventure. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food there was amazing too. A very pleasant surprise.

    What a cool place to visit
    We called in for a visit, not knowing if it was worth it. We had a great time and stayed 3hrs. So much to see, it was far better than expected. The food was really good too. Well worth the visit

    Excited to check this off my bucket list! Wish the place was not so confusing. The way everything is displayed makes no sense. Cases of different artists memorabilia just crammed together with no order to it. Would really liked to see it start with the first inducted class plaques & their memorabilia right next their plaque & continue on like that with all the rest of the years. We enjoyed all the displays & history, just wish it was in some type of order that celebrated the artist accomplishments. Loved the floor with all the instruments. The garage band area is so cool, some very talented people there the day we visited.

    So much to see!
    This museum was too much to absorb in the 2 hours we had time for. We should have planned way more time. This is a great place to relive your past and learn about music and artists you may not have known about. Great collection, movies and broadcasts. We loved it, it was worth the money.

    Definitely worth seeing
    It has been 5 to 6 years since we visited here. I was not able to enter the actual date. We went as everyone should see this place. There are personal items from many rock icons both past and present. Things like Bob Marley's hat, John Lennon's organ, Elton John's jump suit and many, many more things. It is on a number of different levels. I found the set up a bit confusing, and happy Hazzard. It appeared that things were not put in cases by group but just sort of put in the cases in any old way. It would have been, at least in my opinion, a better experience, for example, if they put all the Beatles items together and all Elton John items together. It just appeared a bit jumbled. This is only my opinion and take it for what it is worth. Our kids were a bit younger then and were bored until they got to the "what makes music" room. Here they got to play drums, keyboards, guitar etc. this, they thought was great. We were happy they had fun.

    Visit the place!
    Worth a visit. the name says it all. If you're even a sorta sometime fan, it's worthwhile if you're in the area. Architecture in unique, lots of stairs, but fun. Acoustics are good, places to sit and listen and rest, short films, historic doodads, etc. Very well done.

    It’s not only Rock and Roll.
    The RRHF has a bit of something for everyone, which I see as something of a fault. There are exhibits of Country, Gospel, Pop, Rap/Hip Hop, Folk, Artists. Fine if you are in the Cleveland Music Hall of Fame, but I’ll bet close to half the content is not strictly’R&R’. Disappointing . On the flip side ( lol), the R&R material itself is very interesting, sometimes jaw-dropping. Let’s hope they refine their focus in their new, upcoming, expansion.

The RR Hall of Fame sits right on the lake, a truly beautiful setting. A lot of construction when I visited. Parking was challenging. We parked in a side lot where you scan a QR code to pay, huge pain trying to get that to work. There wasn’t a parking garage close. I was surprised Rap legends were the 1st thing to see at the RR hall of Fame? I was also disappointed that numerous classic rock and roll bands were not even mentioned or noted despite being on the hall of fame wall, yet some bands had more than one display? After traveling up and down 5 floors I was surprised at how few rock and roll bands were displayed. And of course, there were school field trips dropping off loads of kids to run around unattended, ugh.

Visited 5/6/24. Being a Country Music fan, I was skeptical. But I enjoyed it. The displays and history brought back a lot of memories. Don’t care for the contemporary drug stuff, but the old stuff was great.

A great way to spend the morning. The displays were incredible and the information presented interesting. The Garage Band floor was interactive and fun. The cafe food was good and affordable.

We went while attending the Women's Final Four and were a bit overwhelmed by the crowds - there were also hordes of people in Cleveland for the solar eclipse so a bit of a double whammy. The museum is well worth the visit and we really appreciated the area that focused on each of the cities - Memphis, Detroit, Liverpool etc. that gave birth to rock and roll. I had forgotten how the religious community had portrayed rock and roll as the downfall of morality. This is so funny in retrospect! The special presentation on Elvis is worth the watch and provides a time to sit when a bit of rest is needed. Having been born in the late 40's we were able to reminisce a lot. One drawback was that we were unable to use the "free internet" so we couldn't access information that would have enhanced our experience. At the same time staff were very helpful in answering questions and providing directions.

Being in our mid-70s this was one of those places we had always wanted to visit. Unfortunately our time to visit was during the Women's Final Four and the occurrence of the total eclipse. Understandably the place was crowded and a bit difficult to visit. They have a guide one can access through a QR code but alas the internet was not working. There were a number of employees who were extremely helpful in getting us started and answering questions as we progressed through the museum. The exhibits are magical and revive so many memories. We were particularly moved the exhibits of the towns where it all began, each city had a display of memorabilia and a repeating video of the singers from their area. The film about Elvis was enlightening and the stories about how the religious leaders of the time argued that it would destroy our country was quite amusing. It's a must see, but try to go when there are less people in Cleveland on vacation.

I went here one morning when it first opened. It wasn’t very crowded. There are a lot of interesting things to see. It is smaller than I expected. And there is a lack of Led Zeppelin stuff. But it was fun.

It's so much fun to walk around a museum with your own (Boomer) history on display. There were lots of more recent artists as well, so bring the kids/grandkids. We were singing along with an excellent cover band (sorry, I didn't get their name). On Eclipse Weekend, they featured women artists who had truly defined their genres. We sat in on most of the Pink Floyd/Dark Side of the Moon presentation. For those of us who know the songs but never quite got the lyrics, there were multiple clips of our favorite bands with subtitles! (That was a revelation.) We found the pathways confusing, often going against the flow or backtracking past exhibits we'd already seen. Take time to read the information placards. There is an elevator, but if you can do staircases, you'll get to each floor sooner. It would be tight for wheelchairs, so try to go when it's not crowded. Since you get an all-day wristband, feel free to go outside and buy food from street vendors. Don't worry about the "timed" ticket. We arrived 'way before our ticketed time, and it was no problem, even on a busy weekend.

Way too crowded and lighting is terrible. Admittedly we went in the wake of the eclipse, but R&R Hall should govern ticket sales. Anybody in a wheelchair or a scooter couldn’t have seen any exhibits along the walls, because there were so many people standing in the way. Regarding the lighting: The whole place is dark, making it difficult to bend over and read the signs explaining the exhibits above. Also, the stairs are surprisingly poorly lighted, surprising because the crowd is largely senior citizens—a trip and fall lawsuit waiting to happen. Disappointing that there are so few little theaters with R&R star videos, as opposed to endless static displays of famous singers’ guitars. Not the dynamic place we expected.

We expected it to be more a museum than a rotating exhibition space so we left very disappointed. We thought that there would be displays for the artists in the HOF and were looking forward to seeing the displays for our favorite bands. That's not what it is at all. There are exhibits with artifacts from some artists (many too young for the HOF so not in) that offer no history or background on the artists. It really was a better version of a Hard Rock Cafe. The Women in Rock exhibit was just specialized merch in the gift shop.

This location is truly remarkable! For music enthusiasts, it is a must-visit destination. An intriguing special exhibit focused on hip hop was on display, showcasing a variety of items that depicted the evolution of music over the years. Additionally, there is an exhibit highlighting the history of women in music that was equally captivating.
The museum boasted an array of iconic items for visitors to admire, including Michael Jackson's jacket from "Thriller" and Eddie Van Halen's guitars. One could easily spend hours exploring the extensive collection of memorabilia housed in this museum. It is an experience that should not be overlooked.
