    Preserving Rock and Roll History

    Thanks to some rockin' film technology, iconic artifacts may have a longer life: There’s the mop-topped musician’s wool coat and the top-40 artist’s Elvis-inspired gold tux.

    That’s because the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame uses window film that refracts, or blocks, 99.9 percent of UV rays. Those UV rays are what can turn treasured artifacts into dust over time. Hundreds of layers of this film, that are thinner than a Post-it Note, cover the immaculate glass, bouncing light away. Now, rock 'n roll history lives on.
