U.S.A. Ė When our parents told us they were taking us to the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame, we didnít really know what to expect.
As it turned out,
it was kind of boring and not much fun for kids.
While some things
in the Hall were interesting and cool, the museum did not keep us occupied as
long as our parents wanted to stay.

We were bored
probably because we didnít know the musicians there.
There was only one
exhibit that one of us found exciting. Katherine saw three suits the Jonas
Brothers wore on their album cover for ďA Little Bit Longer.Ē To her, that was
the best part of the whole museum.

display involving musicians she knew was better than the whole six floors of
For us, that was
the whole problem with the Hall. Most of the musicians in the Hall we hadnít
heard of before. Older people who had grown up with these musicians and knew
them and cared about them seemed to have more fun.
If you donít know a
musician or havenít heard of him before, you donít really care to go gaga over
his clothes. Itís just a tattered old jacket. Why would we care?
Thankfully we had a
deck of cards with us. We made sure our phone was on so our parents could call
us if they needed us. Then we went up to the sixth floor and played card games
for the next hour or so.
It was nice,
because there were round benches we could sit on. One thing that was really neat
was the gift shop. We bought a postcard and two commemorative pins.
After the museum
part of the Hall of Fame closed, we went outside and played cards some more
while we waited for our parents to get out of the gift shop.
All in all, the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is worth the time to go and see. Just be sure to
bring a deck of cards or a book if youíre not a rock and roll fanatic!
