The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland announced updates and additions to its exhibit celebrating the musical and cultural contributions of the Beatles.

New highlights to the exhibit include an Archibald Ramsden upright piano. In 1963, Paul McCartney moved in with his girlfriend, Jane Asher, at her parents' home in central London and lived there for three years. The piano was located in the basement music room and was where McCartney and John Lennon composed iconic songs such as “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “And I Love Her,” “We Can Work it Out,” “Got to Get You Into My Life,” and “Eleanor Rigby.”

Other items featured include drumsticks used by Ringo Starr during the Beatles concert at Cleveland's Public Auditorium on Sept. 15, 1964; a suit worn by George Harrison during the group's 1966 tour; McCartney's musical score/notes for “Birthday,” written in blue ink on the back of a recording track sheet; and a Hofner Senator electric guitar purchased by Lennon during the Beatles' time in Germany and used as a practice, studio and composition instrument.

The updates will debut Dec. 22. The group was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.

Admission is $23.50, $21.25 for seniors, $13.75 for ages 6-12

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
