Packed with information and artifacts about The Beatles and well worth a visit. Nicely laid out in a almost old fashioned kind of way. Great way to spend a couple of hours!

What a beautifully done museum! I loved it! I will admit, I am a big Beatles fan - that is why I traveled to Liverpool! My wife likes them, but not to the level of myself, and she also loved the museum as well! We spent hours there taking it all in. A WONDERFUL place! I would think it to... More

The museum was full of fun interactive information from how The Beatles started to the end and each individual member. There are great facilities for children to learn. I would advise people to go early to avoid the mass of people trying to look at everything at the one time. If it was quiet, you couldreally emerse yourself and see... More

There is very interesting history here. There are memorabilia, photos, posters, video and audio which dredge up fond memories of the 60's and the British Invasion. They give you an audio guide, but invariably music and commentary from the ceiling speakers overwhelm the audio presentation coming over your earphones. The result is a cacaphony of sound which distracts more than... More

This was definitely a must for any Beatles fan! It was a journey through our teens by following the story of the 'fab four', their beginnings and the ensuing worldwide hysteria. Very we'll put together and my husband set a new record for longest time taken to get through it..... Don't miss it if you are anywhere near Liverpool.

We went to the "Beatles Story" relatively early to beat the crowds. Worked well except for a group of French students who turned the place upside down just as we were about to finish.Lots of great exhibitions and memorabilia to check out. Thought the audio guide was great, and really added to the whole experience. Especially liked the way that... More

The Beatles Story was a great way to spend the day in Liverpool. It was very interesting and any Beatles fan would love it. It chronologically goes through the Beatles history, and there is also entry to an Elvis Exhibit and 4-D Beatles movie (perfect for kids or tired adults) on the other side of the docks. The headset had... More

The Beatles Story is great trip through nostalgia for those of us who were around when the Beatles first showed up, and a great education for those who weren't. The audio headsets are a must, even though the checkpoints for using them were sometimes a bit hard to find. In some areas the background music all but drowned out the... More

Reasonably good value as there is a wealth of material here - almost too much to take in. It was quite difficult to read the notices, look at the displays, listen to the audio guide, and listen to the music played in each area all at the same time! The re-creations of significant places like the Casbah and the Cavern... More
