Museum
“Designed by internationally renowned architect I.M. Pei, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is one of Cleveland's most striking (and recognizable) pieces of architecture. The 150,000-square-foot building has a glass-enclosed, double pyramid adjacent to a 162-foot tower, both of which soar above the shores of Lake Erie. The museum honors all aspects of Rock and Roll. The museum also honors inductees to the Hall of Fame. They share stories of the people, events and songs that shape our world through exhibits, innovative programs and concerts. ”
