Today we had planned to drive from Niagara to our hotel outside of Cleveland to meet up with our relatives the Walls. Since we were going to be at the hotel ~3 hours before our relatives, we were debating about stopping at one of the various wineries advertised along the road. But after catching sight of a sign for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame we decided to visit this instead.
The museum is very easy to find, right off of the interstate, and in a beautiful location downtown on the waters of Lake Erie. The Lake is so large that you can’t see the other side. It kinda reminded me of the ocean. Having only been to the large cities of New York and Boston it was cool how bright Cleveland was. All the buildings were bright and varied in their architecture, and the skyline was much prettier in my opinion than New York’s crowded horizon.
The House that Rock Built, also known as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is a cool triangle shaped glass building. Sadly we weren’t able to take pictures inside any of the exhibits (they didn’t have any cool pictures to buy of the exhibits either 😦 ). But included in the museum’s collection was Micheal Jackson’s glittering glove, Elvis’s car, and Lady Gaga’s meat dress (heavily preserved of course). The featured exhibit was Women who Rock. Exhibits including Janis Joplin, Joan Jett, Melissa Etheridge, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Madonna and many more. According to the exhibit Madonna was expected to fade out, and Cyndi Lauper was expected to remain in the spotlight. I guess you never know what will happen in show business. I was surprised that Taylor Swift was in the exhibit, especially because some bigger stars such as Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce weren’t featured (Brittany Spears was in).
Lots of driving tomorrow, so it’s time to turn in.
