This is the amazing story of how the Beatles went from a school band to becoming the biggest band in the world. I'd recommend a visit to The Cavern in the evening after visiting this museum - here you'll see live music and can imagine what it might've been like 50 years ago when history was being made.

We wanted to go here even though it is the only Beatles museum that charges (£12.95) to get in. When we arrived, we were told the queue was 40 minutes so we decided not to bother as there is plenty more to see on the Albert Dock.

The Beatles were part of my induction into music, it was fantastic seeing their story. Walking, singing along to the music in my ear, as they did in Liverpool. It felt good walking down Penny Lane, "Penny Lane is in my ear and in my heart". It was like turning back the hands of time and being part of history.

You will just enjoy this story and history of this famous group. It's all here. There is a charge to go it. Afterwards, walk some 500 mts into the city to the Cavern Club. Go in, down some dingy steps, for pint or G and T. No charge to go in. Sorry to say you will have to pay normal... More

Excellent tour, even for non Beatles fans. Learned a lot about the band. Very poignant tribute to John Lennon at the end

If you don't know about the Beatles story 'behind the scenes' this is a good place to learn. The audio tour, although the number selection was out of order and not always easy to find, did give quite a bit of information about how they got started, who worked with them along the way and how they changed with every...

Well worth the money. Great tour from beginning to end. Wearing a head set is just the best way of going through the tour. You can repeat anything. It's full of information about the Beatles and their lives. Lots of pictures and film clips and great listening to their music and lots of other music of the time. You can... More

As the only Beatles "museum" the privately-owned Beatles story has a guaranteed audience of fans, especially for foreign visitors..The early years, rival bands, Hamburg etc are well conveyed, but the lack of cooperation by the surviving Beatles and estates does show -- no videos of performances, very little actual music, the Yellow Submarine represented by a fish bowl, the Cavern...
