U2 at Rock n Roll HOF.... no cameras :(

Leave that film at home...... I found this on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Website. This really sucks!!!

Can I take pictures at the Museum?
Many of the artists who have generously loaned or donated artifacts to the Museum have stipulated that these items are not to be photographed or reproduced in any way. Due to our agreements with these artists, photography and video are allowed only in the Museum Lobby. Cameras should be left at the coat and camera checkroom on the Museum's Ground Level.

When I was little, and my family would go on vacation, we'd always end up seeing all this pretty stuff when we had no camera...so Mom would always say "Take a picture in your mind!", and we'd pretend to take pictures with invisible cameras.

Think people would stare at me funny if I did that now?

Yeah, I was disappointed to find that out the first time I went there. They treat the place like a museum, and, obviously, you're not allowed to take pictures at an art museum. You can take pictures of the trabants hanging in the front of the museum, though.

Yeah, it really blows. I would have loved to have taken pictures of all the stuff I saw last time.

Oh well.

Yeah, if they see you with one they will make you leave it outside the museum. They give you a ticket to go pick it up afterward. They say some rock stars who donated stuff don't want it photographed but I think they think if you can show pics to your friends they'll be less likely to come tightwads.

EMP in Seattle is the same way. No pictures, however they sell a great book for $20 so I bought that and was happy.

(BTW the Getty Museum in Los Angeles has no problems with cameras (just no flashes) and they have art work there that is $$$$

I don't see why they won't let people take in cameras. I mean, I live nowhere near the place, so I can't visit it. However, if someone could post pics on the web, I'd actually be able to see it. I mean, either way, there's no way the Hall of Fame will get my money, so why not let more people see it then?

BTW, if I did leave in Cleveland, I'd definitely go see it (even if I had seen pictures previously). Seeing those handwritten lyrics is almost like a religious experience.

They won't let pictures because they think there's a much greater chance of people from far away travelling to actually go into the musem if they haven't seen what is in the display. They're quite possibly right for a lot of people... not me though because I won't go either way. However I'd want to go less if I could see what was inside without actually going there.

I was going to mention that. Usually museums (at least every one I've ever been to) sell souvenir books, especially of special exhibits. I'm sure they'll do that for this one because it's a major exhibit... I mean, it takes up four floors of the museum for a majority of the year.

I would look for a souvenir book... and maybe someone would be willing to buy a couple to distribute
