Rock Hall Looks to Build Enclosed Walkway to Science Center, Make Other Expansions


1 comment
For those who've had to brave the elements walking between the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center, the times they could soon be a-changin'.

Seeking a lease on the acre of grassy, city-owned land between the two properties right along Lake Erie, the Rock Hall has proposed the building of a glass enclosed walkway that would connect the popular museums.

“We are excited that this will ultimately form a museum campus by connecting with our neighbor so people can move completely indoors between the two museums,” Rock Hall President and CEO Greg Harris told the Plain Dealer.

The Rock Hall also plans to expand its museum space by an added 50,000 square feet, which could be used for concerts, exhibits or whatever else they may want.
