Phone: 216.781.7625) will launch its much-anticipated exhibit celebrating iconic musical instruments that gave rock & roll its signature sound. “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll” opens at the Rock Hall on November 22, 2019 following a blockbuster stint at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, where it topped 600,000 visitors.
