The museum wasn't so much a museum but rather a time lapse of the Beatles from early life to the deaths of George and John. Not much in the way of memorabilia or original costumes/instruments but a good historic journey and narrated headphone tour. Should last about 60 minutes

Living in Liverpool, it was a long overdue visit. However, ended up disappointed. It was very expensive for what was there, was not interactive or engaging. Just a load of old stories and memorabilia.

Walked to Albert Dock from our hotel (which is a place to visit as well) where this is based. There were four of us and entry also has concessions age (nice one) the entrance starts as you would expect at the start (remember to take the headphones) and walks you through the life and times of the Fab four as...

The Beatles Story at Albert Dock is amazing! As a fan, I've researched and studied The Beatles for years and still managed to learn new things and see things I had never seen before. John Lennon's sister Julia narrates the audio tour. Some of the things on display are George's first guitar, John's glasses (bent, as the display card says,... More

I was not a huge Beatles fan before going to Liverpool, but found this museum fascinating and very inclusive. I now have a new appreciation for the Fab Four. Allow at least 2 hours, there is a lot to see and it tells the story well.

This is worth the money and more if you have any liking for the fab four. The pictures and memorabilia on show are exceptional and listening to the voices reliving the memories is quite moving. Having a go on the drum kit with a lesson from Ringo was fun. Then included in the price was part two a visit to... More

This is a delight. For those of us who grew up in the 60's a chance to relive those times. The exhibits are well laid out and the audio tour is excellent and gives you lots of background. A real pleasure.

There are 2 venues and both superb with film clips, interactive areas and magnificent photo displays. Visitor centres have a good variety of gifts for the avid fans to take away. I'm delighted with 2 tapestry cushions purchased which are excellent quality.

This is an absolute must for Beatle fans. The exhibition bring the Beatles story to life and takes you a journey from the earliest beginnings of the Fab Four through Beatlemania to the break-up of the band and their individual careers from then on. We've been three times to date and will probably visit again at some point in the... More
