Welcome Reception at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Please join us at the Cleveland’s most visited venue, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to celebrate our 21st Annual Conference of Museums and the Web.  Beer, Wine and hors d’oeuvres are served. The exhibits are changed frequently, and some items are displayed on a temporary basis. 2016 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee exhibit showcases honorees Steve Miller, Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, N.W.A. and Chicago along with featuring artifacts from the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Blondie, the Doors, U2, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, the Who, the Supremes, Guns N’ Roses and others. The Hall also explores rock’s impact on the next generation of artists by taking visitors on an intimate journey into the stories of popular acts from today, including Sia, Bruno Mars, The Black Keys and others.

U2 3D (2008, 85 minutes, MPAA Rating: G) will be shown at 8pm.  
The first-ever live-action digital 3-D film, U2 3D is a unique cinematic experience that places viewers within the pulsing energy of a stadium concert given by the world’s most popular band. Marrying innovative digital 3-D imagery and multi-channel surround sound with the excitement of a live U2 concert – shot in South America during the final leg of their “Vertigo” tour – it creates an immersive theatrical experience unlike any 3-D or concert film that has come before. Ushering in a new dimension of filmmaking, U2 3D takes viewers on an extraordinary journey they will never forget. Showing at 8pm, limited seating available (175 spots).

An admission ticket is required and is included in full registration packages. Extra tickets for guests can be purchased online or at the Conference Registration Desk.

The hall is 10 minutes walking distance from the Conference Hotel.  Due to the renovation construction inside the hall, inside elevator is not available.  Throughout the hall, you can use the escalators.  If you need assistance, please contact info@mwconf.org
