(Cleveland) - Visits have increased dramatically at the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
CEO Greg Harris reports the latest figures indicate there were 570,000 visitors which rivals the Hall's early years.
Harris says they are allowing furloughed government works to visit for free, and there is free admission for all on MLK Day.
New exhibits are planned for this year include the 2019 Inductee Exhibit this March, and in May the 50th anniversary of Woodstock will be celebrated.
In July, the Interactive Garage will open, allowing visitors to play instruments, record and mix tracks in a garage studio-like environment.
Harris says there were 80 live music events held at the Rock Hall last summer, with more than 2,300 artist and VIP visits, with the music shrine generating a $199 million dollar impact on Greater Cleveland.
