I was there a few years ago and was impresed by some very nice TH pieces (that were a wee bit to big and secured to drop in my bag)... I don't know if regulary ever change the collecion, so it might just be their name on the wall when you go, but I remember seeying the original Polaroid mosaic that was done for the cover of 'More songs about building and food", one of the SMS suits (among a lot of other iconic r&r suits from the past) and some nice pictures. There's more, but I'm not in the mood to remember things... (jetleg...) Have fun and keep us posted on what you saw.

I defintely will.(With pictures :mrgreen: ) It'd be awesome to see the big suit but heck I'd be happy with just their names on the wall.Not sure how I'll find them though.Not sure how they place things in their? By band? By subject?

From what I remember, they have certain sections loosely based on era and/or genre. It's not as big as you might think, give it a couple of hours and you've seen everything. I loved seeying the ZZ Top car - it's in front of the 'More songs' polaroids. You'll find the big suit in the suits section. The only sign of TH in the I could find in the merchandise store was their name printed on the back of hte r&rHoF T-shirts (along with all other inductees).

1. Near the beginning of the exhibition. Can't miss it, it's huge!

2. Not that I remember, but it's been a few years since I've been there. If it's there, you won't miss it, it's not that big.
