Outside the Classroom

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum educates about the historical significance and impact of rock and roll through a variety of different formats, including performances, artist interviews, lectures, community festivals, film screenings and conferences in venues both on and offsite to help the Museum reach expanding audiences. Special guests include anyone from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees and music legends to music industry experts, up-and-coming musicians and more.  There’s something for everyone.



The Library and Archives is the most comprehensive repository of materials relating to the history of rock and roll. Our mission is to collect, preserve, and provide access to these resources for scholars, educators, students, journalists, and the general public in order to broaden awareness and understanding of rock and roll, its roots, and its impact on our society.
