A ROCKIN’ GOOD TIME FOR MUSIC LOVERS OF ALL AGES
Where were you when Elvis first performed on the Ed Sullivan show? Do you remember the original 1969 Woodstock lineup? Whether you were alive to see the birth of rock ‘n’ roll or simply have an appreciation for the iconic moments that came before you, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland offers all music fans an interactive journey through the halls of rock.
Located on seven levels and spanning 55,000 square feet, the museum houses a range of exhibits beginning in 1950 and continuing into present-day rock ‘n’ roll. You’ll see exhibits ranging from Elvis to the Beatles to Sia, and everything in between.
For families with young children, a trip to the museum is a great learning opportunity. The exhibits showcase the powerful impact rock ‘n’ roll has had on society and how it has influenced our daily lives. From the way we speak to the clothes we wear, the genre has even shaped political and social movements.
In the 1950s, rock ‘n’ roll inspired a generation of young people to stand up to segregation and come together to fight intolerance and hate. In the 1960s and 1970s, rock ‘n’ roll gave a voice to those who opposed the Vietnam War. That era brought with it the rise of rock giants including the Beatles, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, who brought the reality of war into the households of many Americans. Artists wrote about class- and race-based unfairness of the draft. It was topics like these that united a generation and created a cultural revolution. All of these stories are preserved and represented at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
For fans of all ages, a trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is a great opportunity to learn more about the musical legends who defined a genre.
