Claudine: This Hall of Fame is amazing. There are so many exhibits on the roots of rock and roll.

Sam: And I like the interactive kiosks.

Claudine: Yes, the multimedia aspect is cool. I liked the one titled “Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.”

Sam: Next, let’s go see the wall with the signatures of all the inductees.

Claudine: That sounds good. And then do you think we should try to find Mom and Dad? Last time we saw them, they were outside looking at the design of the building.

Sam: Yes, we need to bring them inside. Otherwise, they won’t have time to see all of the cool stuff in here.
