Owner description: The award winning Beatles Story is a unique visitor attraction that will transport you on an exciting and atmospheric journey into the life, times, culture and music of the Beatles. See how four young lads from Liverpool were propelled to the dizzy heights of worldwide fame and fortune to become the greatest band of all time.The Beatles Story is located across two sites. 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. The globally significant exhibition explores how The Fab Four were influenced by the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and includes rare and exclusive artefacts, many of which have never before been exhibited publicly.

Brilliant for an old Beatles fan! Loved it! It told the story from when it all began - be sure to take the earphones provided & the ticket covered two days if you hadn't the time on one day

If you like the Beatles, you'll love this. Such a broad spectrum of information. Really well put together into an impressive collection. It really does tell the whole story from start to the very sad end of the Fab Four. We also visited the British Invasion, adds another flavour to the day. The 4D cinema is a nice bit of... More

When I lived in a very remote place, in the '60's,it was our small Tranny that belted out the Beatles Hits all throughout the day, and half the night. That was their first time around, and just think how far they went, and how far their music has travelled. This is an impressive exhibition with some very good stories being... More

i love the beatles ! But this was so dull, the first few rooms are about the history of Liverpool rather than specifically The Beatles, then you get over that and it's into darkness with a boring electronic headphone pack that just drones on about boring facts about the Beatles, very few objects actually owned by The Bealtes and mostly...

Spent two hours visiting this exhibition located in Albert Dock Liverpool. There is so much information that you could spend longer if you are a real,Beatles history addict. We also went to the 4D attraction located at the Pierhead, but found this disappointing.
