Lonely Planet review
Cleveland's top attraction is more than a collection of memorabilia, though it does have Jimi Hendrix's Stratocaster, Keith Moon's platform shoes and Ray Charles' sunglasses. Interactive multimedia exhibits trace the history and social context of rock music and the performers who created it. Why is the museum in Cleveland? Because this is the hometown of Alan Freed, the disk jockey who popularized the term 'rock 'n' roll' in the early 1950s, and because the city lobbied hard and paid big. Be prepared for crowds (especially thick until 1pm or so). In summer, Johnny Cash's tour bus parks outside; climb aboard to see how the Man in Black lived.
