Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
It was a quick drive to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame from our hotel in the suburbs of Cleveland. This Hall of Fame could probably be in the Architecture Hall of Fame because of the unique design of the building on both the exterior and exterior.
I first became a rock and roll fan in junior high school when my brother gave me an 8-track tape he did not want that he received as a gift. I am so happy that this 8-track was Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen. To this day it is my favorite album/8-track/CD and download of all time.
You are first struck by the exterior view of the Hall and that is soon replaced by the interior view of several floors of exhibition space views from a wide open lobby. The first couple floors have exhibits on music history with the final couple floor dedicated to interactive and temporary exhibits. As you reach the toip of the building they have an area for the inductees.
We followed what has become a habit at the other museums of walking through all the exhibits a first time followed by a more indepth review in a seond trip around the museums. We were in the Hall for a good six hours on our visit with highlights of exhibits on the Stones, Beatles, Elvis and of course Brue Springsteen. I was also happy that the musical influences of rock and roll were well represented.
We ate a late lunch in the cafeteria and then had then decided to tour as much of Cleveland as we could before we had to head to Indiana.
