“Walk This Way” if you’ve got a “Whole Lotta Love” for rock ‘n’ roll. The Ryman Auditorium officially opened its newest exhibit, Rock Hall at the Ryman today, Nov. 2. The exhibit is unveiled in partnership with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame + follows the music venue’s recognition as the 12th Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Landmark earlier this year.

Over 100 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees who have performed at the Mother Church throughout its 130 years are honored throughout the exhibit — which is located in the venue’s 5th Avenue vestibule and included with every tour ticket purchase.

What you’ll see

The exhibit features a number of legends like James Brown, the Foo Fighters, Eric Clapton, and The Byrds — in addition to more traditional country music greats like Johnny Cash and Hank Williams. Some artifacts to keep your eyes peeled for include:

🎸 Elvis Presley’s full-length coat worn in 1970
🎸 Taylor Hawkins’ outfit worn to induct Rush into the Rock Hall in 2013
🎸 Joan Jett’s red bra halter worn on on the 2006 Warped Tour
🎸 A Shure microphone used by The Who’s Roger Daltrey
