Welcome to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The term 'rock and roll' was coined by Cleveland DJ Alan Freed in the early 1950s, and it is partly for this reason that Cleveland won the fiercely contested honour of becoming home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei as an 'echo of the energy of rock and roll', the glass and porcelain pyramid-shaped structure is a celebration of the American institution of rock music in honour of those who have had an influential role on modern music. With a permanent collection drawing from the most impressive and iconic rock and roll artefacts and a wide-ranging roster of on-going and temporary exhibits, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is dedicated to exploring the past, present and future of the music. The Museum augments its own massive collection of thousands of artefacts with items on loan from artists and collectors from around the world. It includes exhibits dedicated to the museum's choice of all-time top artists, including Elvis Presley, the Beatles, U2 and the Rolling Stones. As one of the state's top attractions, it gets particularly crowded on weekends and advance booking is required, especially as new artists are being inducted.
