Spotlight on the Rock & Roll and Football Halls of Fame

             The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, in Cleveland, Ohio, is a fitting tribute to the history of rock and roll music, with emphasis on the individuals and groups who shaped its development and popularity.  An immense collection of memorabilia is displayed in interesting and imaginative ways.  Note that cameras of any kind are not allowed beyond the lobby.

            One of the most popular sections is the Hall of Fame Wing with its multimedia presentation which tells the stories of those who have been inducted.

            Many of the exhibits are interactive and the visit is a truly nostalgic trip down memory lane for rock and roll aficionados.      

            Just southeast of Cleveland, and worth a side trip, is the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, which honors the sport of Professional Football with extensive exhibits and memorabilia, highlighting the best players and teams. The history of the game is also chronicled.  The rotating Game Day Stadium Theater offers audiovisual presentations. The annual Induction Ceremony occurs in August.
