A lot of memorabilia...costumes & instruments. They did a good job of showing the history/influences of Rock and Roll. Did not like the layout of exhibits or that some artists were not represented. Needs more interactive displays. Did enjoy all the film footage. Overall glad I came. If you love music you will want the experience of visiting.

The exhibits span multiple generations, not sure I'd say it's good for young children simply because of the genres. Great for teens!

I would have liked the memorabilia more stretched out across the four floors instead of crammed into the first floor. The genres of music needed to be more defined as well. Some artists were clearly more favored. Metal was not represented much. For $25 I think there needed to be more artists represented. Could have cared less about The Rolling Stones covers. I can see all that on the internet. Spent about an hour to see the whole thing. Just something to check off the bucket list but not really something I’d see twice. Easy to park there.

First time to The HoF so wasn't sure what to expect. Lots of good memorabilia but not necessarily in the order of the development of RnR. Want to go back when I have more time. Discounts available for advance purchase. Decent food court w/ good variety and an excellent gift shop! Very nice staff!

As first time visitors, it was at first overwhelming to take in all of the sights and sounds that the museum offers. There's something for everyone to see.

The layout is a bit odd, with the majority of the exhibits on the lowest level. It did feel very "museum-like" and not as interactive as we had hoped. It felt like there was a ton of wasted space with not much else on the other 4 floors, except for a Rolling Stone Magazine exhibit.

It's in a great location, easy to walk to and the staff are very helpful in navigating within the museum. Coat check is free which was a nice touch.
