Museums in Cleveland
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
(2)
Like many midwestern cities, Cleveland suffered from a long period of economic decline in the 70s and 80s. As part of a massive project to renew interest in the city, the amazing Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was built and opened 20 years ago. It's hard to believe one museum could do so much to help a big city, but having visited for myself I now understand why. The museum is truly impressive and a must visit for any fan of popular music. The name of the museum is somewhat limiting actually, because there are actually exhibits on gospel, blues, rhythm & blues and folk, country and bluegrass. This is because the museum does a very nice job of tracing the history of rock music. Of course there is plenty of memorabilia as well, with countless guitars and even a motorcycle (or tricycle?) that belonged to Elvis. This whole section of Cleveland is really quite beautiful now and there are a number of other places to visit in the área. That said, the museum took up pretty much my whole day so be sure to wear comfortable shoes!
