CLEVELAND (April 23, 2016) — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland will be offering free admission and limited hours during the week of the Republican National Convention this summer under a sponsorship deal with AT&T.

Cleveland.com reports the museum will be free and open to the public the week of July 17-21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

CEO Greg Harris says the AT&T deal will more than cover what the museum would normally make during that time

The museum will close early that week to set up for convention-related events. Groups including the Ohio Republican Party have reserved the space on the shore of Lake Erie for invitation-only events.

The free admission covers the Rock Hall’s planned “Louder than Words” exhibit, which premiers May 20.
