Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
This is probably Cleveland's best known and most popular tourist attraction, and it is located just a short walk from the Hilton.
The Conference will be holding its Opening Reception there on Sunday evening. We will have exclusive use of the facility from 7 to 11 pm. There will be a nominal fee of $15 to attend. Kosher hors d’oevres will be served, and there will be a cash bar. Participants will also receive a discount coupon for a second visit later in the week.
The website of what Clevelanders call the “Rock Hall” can be visited HERE.

Cleveland Museum of Art
The Cleveland Museum of Art is probably the Number Two attraction. Its collection is particularly strong in American art, including Native American art.
In addition to the many regular exhibits, the following special exhibit will be open during the time of the conference: Medieval Monsters: Terrors, Aliens, Wonders.
Cleveland Museum of Natural History
The Museum of Natural History is located a short distance from the Museum of Art, making a nice pair of museums to visit.
The most famous item on exhibit is the skeleton of Lucy, the three-million-year-old human ancestor.
