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.

My 8 year old has become a beatles fan and we had a great couple of days in both the museums, we bought the tickets one day and could go in on the same ticket the next day.

I was nearby and thought to drop in. It is very well organized, with head set with story telling and everything. But I am not really a fun of Beatles so it was more educational for me.

We paid for both parts of the Beatles Story, one at Pier Head, the other, main part , at Albert Dock. You have to be a die-hard Beatles fan to get the most out of the place. You get headphones, and have to listen to everything. After a while, it seemed to repeat the facts, and I found it boring!!... More

A superb way to relive the times and triumphs of the Fab Four. Entry fee includes the vital headset which gives a most informative overview of every period of their rise and eventual end. The displays are varied and full of evocative memorabilia. The accompanying soundtrack brings memories swimming back, and the 'Cavern Club' was a real highlight, equalled by... More

This tourist attraction is underground & at the time that we visited there was no lift access so was no good for people with mobility problems. The exhibition was very informative (via a headset & written information) leading you right through from when the 'lads' met, to The Cavern Club & The Psychedelic period with The Yellow Submarine & Sergeant...
