    Hello!

    I'm wondering about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Library & Archives Tour on Tuesday, 6/18. The time frame noted is 10am - 12pm, which I assumed meant it was a 2 hour tour, but I'm seeing the 10am option on the Event Registration site shows Sold Out - however there is an option to select 11am too.

    Is this a separate tour that beings at 11am instead of 10am? I was under the impression this was one tour group and the tour duration is 2 hours total. However the page makes it seem like it's a duration of 1 hour and there are two options to select from. I can select the option for the 11am-12pm tour but wanted to confirm if this was really the case.

    Thank you in advance for any clarification regarding this event!

    Hi Kiera,
    Thanks for checking.
    There will be two tours: 10-11 and 11-12 on Tuesday. The first one filled up so quickly that SLA decided to add a second. I hope you can make it!
    Best,
    Meredith
