(Cleveland) - It’s the exhibit Rolling Stones fans have been waiting for at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

'Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction' opens today and runs through next April.

The exhibit takes a look at the band from the mid-60's through today and takes up more than two floors of the museum.



Fans will, through artifacts, film, text, and interactive technology, get looks at rare items from nearly every aspect of the Rolling Stones five decades.

Curator Meredith Rutledge-Borger says the band was very involved in the process of gathering items. There are instruments, outfits, artwork and even some hand-written items. Be sure to check out the Chuck Berry album when you first walk in.

Rutledge-Borger says "the world's greatest rock and roll band" appeals to die-hard fans and people who only know a few hits. She says the Rock Hall is expecting good crowds.+

Rock Hall President and CEO Greg Harris says the first-ever exhibit gives the museum the opportunity to tell the story of one of the definitive rock and roll bands.

The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by The Who's Pete Townshend in 1989.
