“Designed by I. M. Pei and structurally engineered by Leslie E. Robertson Associates, the building rises above the shores of Lake Erie. It is a combination of geometric forms and cantilevered spaces that are anchored by a 162-foot tower. The tower supports a dual-triangular-shaped glass "tent" that extends (at its base) onto a 65,000-square-foot plaza that provides a main entry facade. The building houses more than 55,000 square feet of exhibition space, as well as administrative offices, a store, and a café. "In designing this building," Pei said, "it was my intention to echo the energy of rock and roll. I have consciously used an architectural vocabulary that is bold and new, and I hope the building will become a dramatic landmark for the city of Cleveland and for fans of rock and roll around the world. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, located in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, on the shore of Lake Erie, recognizes and archives the history of the best-known and most influential artists, producers, engineers, and other notable figures who have had some major influence on the development of rock and roll. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation was established on April 20, 1983, by Ahmet Ertegun, founder and chairman of Atlantic Records. In 1986, Cleveland was chosen as the Hall of Fame's permanent home”

History Museum
“You’ll see rotating temporary exhibits all year long and a permanent collection that includes “Lucy,” our 3.2 million-year-old human ancestor, a full-sized replica of a T-rex and the 70-foot-long, 14-foot-tall skeleton of “Happy,” the oldest sauropod on display in the world. Steggie, the iconic, full-sized Stegosaurus sculpture that has guarded the gates for more than 50 years, is pretty hard to miss. The original Steggie was created by the same sculptors who were commissioned to make life-sized dinosaur sculptures for the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. Bone lovers are in luck — this museum has lots of them. The Hamann-Todd Collection is a well-known set of more than nearly 4,000 human and primate skeletons — including “Lucy” — that were assembled as far back as 1893. And, of course, there are the dinosaur bones that comprise the Kirtland Hall of Prehistoric Life. Look for the Coelophysis bauri, which, at 225 million years old, is the museum’s oldest dinosaur. If you’re interested in learning about our own indigenous flora and fauna, check out the newly renovated Perkins Wildlife Center. The sprawling, two-acre landscape located within the outdoor footprint of the museum includes enclosures for both local avaria and bobcats, as well as a forest-canopy-covered trail. WHAT ELSE TO DO? Every third Wednesday, the museum hosts its Think & Drink events for adults, starting at 5 p.m. The events usually center around a topic (previous ones include “Life After Death” and “Beer and Beyond: Fermentation”) and are paired with a visiting local brewery. It’s the study group you always wished you’d had. Every Wednesday that does not include a Think & Drink event is another science and alcohol pairing — Museum Under the Stars. Guests can take in a viewing session at the Ralph Mueller Observatory as they eat and sip wine and beer selections from famed Cleveland chef and restaurateur Zack Bruell’s in-museum restaurant, Exploration. The Observatory is part of the Nathan and Fannye Shafran Planetarium, which, with its stargazing and constellation-sighting opportunities, is worth a nighttime visit — whether you’re drinking or not.”

“ Back in the early 1980s, producers of a film called "A Christmas Story" — based on a story written by author Jean Shepherd — were seeking filming locations for what was supposed to look like an Indiana steel town in the '40s. They found their answer in a home located in the Cleveland neighborhood of Tremont. Originally built in 1895, the house underwent a serious of facelifts both before and after filming. But in 2004, San Diego-based entrepreneur Brian Jones — a longtime fan of the film — bought the home on eBay and renovated it to once again match the scenes from the movie. He used profits from his own business, which sells replicas of the movie’s iconic leg lamp, for the down payment. This means the 1983 holiday classic has become as much a part of our city as pierogies and craft beer. It also means we all get to see the Parker family’s fictional two-story Victorian splashed across TBS on a continuous loop every Christmas. The house still stands today and is a hugely popular year-round visitor attraction. WHAT YOU'LL SEE: Walk through the exact replica of the home of the Parker family. Admire the leg lamp in the window. Take a selfie next to the Christmas tree. Grimace in a pink bunny suit. Hide under the kitchen sink. And, of course, hold the Red Ryder BB gun. But resist the temptation to fire it — you might shoot your eye out. WHAT ELSE TO DO? Two other homes across the street have been renovated into a gift shop and museum. The museum showcases behind-the-scenes photos and original props and costumes, including the original leg lamp, Ralphie’s bunny suit and the famous Red Ryder BB gun. In December, visitors can run in the A Christmas Story 5k/10k, which routes between Public Square in Downtown Cleveland and the house's location in Tremont. Hundreds of participants — from serious runners to stroller brigades — come out to enjoy this ridiculous winter fun-run where folks dress up like the movie’s characters (some even run wearing Leg Lamp costumes).”
