Stodgy museums, step to the side: the glass-enclosed Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a hip-shaking, guitar-flinging reminder of why Cleveland is ground zero for world-famous music. Memorabilia immortalizes the radio DJs and recording artists who invented the genre, while special galleries honor those who paved the way (such as Cleveland native Leo Mintz, the former Record Rendezvous owner largely considered one of the founding fathers of rock). And much like rock-and-roll itself, the multi-level museum just keeps on evolving.

We’re pretty amped about the return of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony to Cleveland this fall (Oct. 30, 2021), as are the illustrious new class of inductees ranging from Tina Turner (a double inductee) to the Foo Fighters to Jay-Z. Giving new meaning to “arena rock,” the ceremony will also make the move to Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse this year—going bigger, better and best of both worlds with a radio simulcast and other virtual components. Rock on!

After being temporarily closed due to COVID, The Garage exhibit has reopened and is turning it back up to 11. This hands-on, interactive space lets visitors fulfill their dreams of rock god(dess) status with the chance to play real instruments and jam garage band-style. (Hey, Nirvana started that way—why not you?) Also, check out the new “Garage Gear” exhibit highlighting items from the museum’s collection, such as Les Paul’s “The Plank” guitar circa 1940 or Eddie Van Halen’s hand-built Peavey Wolfgang guitar.
Rock connects us. Our mission is clear: To engage, teach and inspire through the power of rock and roll. We share stories of the people, events and songs that shape our world through exhibits, innovative programs and concerts.
