Bob Bonis was the group's tour manager from 1964 to 1966. The photos show a wide range of their activities, from performances onstage to hanging out. One photo shows Keith Richards cutting Charlie Watts' hair.

The photos will be part of a weeklong tribute for the Music Masters Series, to be held Oct. 21 to Oct. 26.

Some of the musicians who worked with the group will attend a concert, and other events will be held during the week.

The series has also honored Woody Guthrie, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and Chuck Berry. The museum is located in Cleveland.
