The first site situated at the Albert Dock includes the main Beatles Story exhibition, an interactive Discovery Zone, the Fab4Store and a Beatles-themed Starbucks Coffee house. The second site, situated a 10 minute walk away houses the Elvis and Us special exhibition, the Fab4D Experience, the Beatles Hidden Gallery, a second Fab4Store and the Imagine Liverpool Store.Our current special exhibition 'Elvis and Us' is presented by Graceland and The Beatles Story.

Great museum, housing everything you would want to know about the Beatles, some great photos, music memorabilia and interactive area to go on. Loved the Yellow Submarine, Ellena Rigsby grave and John Lennon white piano. Definitely a must visit whilst in Liverpool.

Even though I'm a 90s child and not into Beatles, but with a intrest in music. I came here with my mum who is a big Beatles fan and really enjoyed the experience. it's very well explained and set out. For £15 per person its a reasonable price for what you get plus you're only visit once. Will recommend the... More

We did this tour as a group of 4 and found it to be very enjoyable! Well worth doing. My only advice would be to go at off peak times (if they have any) because the main tour, the areas with information on display are quiet small so if there is lots of people in there it can be hard... More

After getting off of the Magical Mystery Bus Tour and visiting the Cavern, we walked back over to Albert Dock and visited the Beatles Museum. A neighbor suggested we do this. So glad we did! What a great collection of photos and memorabilia. What a wonderful timeline. When you are done enjoying the museum, do pop into the fabulous gift... More

If you are, you have to go there. Otherwise, don't waste your time. I enjoyed it, but I like The Beatles very much. I just think that if you're not interested in their story, you won't like it. Because it is their story;)

Terrible attempt to teach the visitor something new about the Beatles. No originality. Head phones are provided as you walk the claustrophobic museum so you can learn about the Fab Four, in reality you are forever trying to read something on the many many boards that are situated through out the museum, numbered so you follow in order, only to...

Situated in Albert Docks this is not the cheapest attraction at £14.95 per adult plus £2.50 for tour book. This is a trip back into the 60's with obviously The Beatles as the central theme but it tells you the story also of 60's Liverpool with the help of an excellent personal audio headset up that lets you take as...

Day trip in Liverpool decided to visit it's very informative tour you are given a headset which tells you all about the things in the museum without the headset you could probably wonder around the museum in about 20 minutes. I didn't enjoy it it was very expensive for what it was and I'm just glad I didn't travel this... More

The Beatles story is really good and informative, it is very enjoyable but in my view it is far too expensive for people on a small budget when there are so many free or inexpensive attractions in the area. If you want to save money go to the Cavern and Mathew street instead and pop into the Beatles shop, see... More

My friend & I went to The Beatles Story in the Liverpool Albert docks (on a separate review). The staff was friendly, helpful & informative. It was great to see the history through the years of the Beatles, and was lucky to get to see a fab tribute act performing. The entrance fee is £14.95 for adults. There is a... More
