Rock Hall in Cleveland nearly done with renovation


CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland has nearly finished its multimillion-dollar renovation project, a month ahead of this year's induction ceremony.

The carpet, signs and entry leading to the Hall of Fame are now red, a change from the former white exterior that some visitors previously overlooked. The institution's president, Terry Stewart, tells The Plain Dealer ( ) that exhibits have been realigned more chronologically. There are also new interactive displays.

All that remains to be added are some new signs and a film in the Rolling Stones exhibit.

The rock hall aimed to finish the nearly $7 million redesign before the April 14 induction ceremony at Cleveland's Public Auditorium. The inductees include Guns N' Roses, the Beastie Boys and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
