ARNOLDS PARK, Iowa (AP) — The hundreds of inductee exhibits in the Iowa Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame have moved to a new space in Arnolds Park. They can be found now in the same building that houses the Iowa Great Lakes Maritime Museum. Both museums are part of the entertainment complex in Arnolds Park.

The Hall of Fame had been in the Roof Garden, an open-air complex next to the amusement park. The Roof Garden was demolished and is being rebuilt as part of the multi million-dollar Restore the Park campaign.

The Sioux City Journal reports that the new Hall of Fame museum has three times more space than the old version for the photos, videos and memorabilia from bands, musicians and radio personalities.
