Description

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
The term ‘rock and roll’ was coined by a Cleveland disc jockey in 1951 and it was largely for this reason that Cleveland became home to this institution dedicated to it. When the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum opened in 1995, it was already emblematic of the city’s revival. Designed by the renowned architect I M Pei, the attraction celebrates the American pop-cultural institution of rock music by honouring its popular and influential performers, producers, songwriters and disc jockeys. Various exhibits, films and displays explore nearly all aspects of rock and roll – from the roots of the genre in folk music, blues and country music to a large variety of rock and roll artefacts.
