Museum
“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.”

“Northeast Ohio's premier destination for young children to learn through play with interactive exhibits in an environment designed to excite, enrich and inspire. Let's Play! As a leader in imaginative and creative play, The Children's Museum of Cleveland (CMC) gives children a place and the tools to write their own script and discover their own adventures through our interactive exhibits and programs. A child will be naturally drawn to those activities that most excite and engage him or her. We offer an open-ended learning environment giving children the opportunity to imagine, experiment, problem-solve and communicate - building skills for a 21st-century learner. We are an advocate for self-directed play as one of the best ways for a young child to learn. We are a museum for all children - of all abilities, backgrounds, and ages. In our beautiful, historic new home, we respect not only childhood but also the parent and caregiver as the child's first teacher. As a vital community resource, we provide experiences that can bridge a child's learning between the Museum, home, and school.”

Art Gallery
“This is a huge collection of stores that sell all hand made items. It is an old warehouse, four stories tall, now filled with more than 40 art galleries and other incredible shops. On the third Saturday of every month, they have a huge pop up grouping of more than 150 hand made vendors. Each shop is unique, so nailing down the open hours is difficult, but it is worth driving over just to look through the art. Blank Canvas Theatre is also here, and they often have wedding receptions here on weekends. ”

“The Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum of the Western Reserve Historical Society depicts the automobile at various stages of development, both on a national and regional level. Its automobiles and artifacts are the centerpieces of two major exhibits at the Cleveland History Center in University Circle: Setting the World in Motion and REVolution: The Automobile in America. Few people know that Northeast Ohio was a crucial hub of development in the transportation industry. The Crawford Auto-Aviation Collection brings the history of transportation alive through the over 170 antique automobiles, 21 non-car transportation artifacts (motorcycles, bicycles, and boats), 12 aircraft, and 3 carriages and sleighs. The Collection is enhanced further by the WRHS Automotive Marque Files, which include automobile brochures, owner’s manuals, advertisements, and more. The Crawford Auto-Aviation Collection was initially formed in 1963, with the donation of Thompson Products Auto Album from Frederick C. Crawford and TRW.”
