A must see.. The first part was far more interesting than the second. The first Beatles story building focused on the sentimental elements of the Beatles creation. The second seemed more focused on the industry in America at the time. The 4d cinema experience was fun however. Overall, a great attraction and well worth a visit

Glad we went and it was very fascinating although it could be laid out better. The exhibits were very close together and could if been given more space. I'm glad we went at a quiet time as think it would be difficult to see everything if busy

Went to see the Museum. Personally not one of the Biggest fan. So i found it a bit like watching National geographic program. Very interesting especially for Fans. The ear phones help to understand a bit more. Worth the visit anyway.

Myself and partner went to the museum and did the audio tour it was really interesting and amazing to see how the Beatles became such a worldwide band and how Liverpool became so famous through them. Also the 4d experience is brilliant. It's not something I would do again but definitely worth doing once fabulous well worth a visit.

I was a little disappointed by this exhibition I found it was rather noisy inside which made the headphones u were given for the tour hard to listen to. The recreation of the cavern club was good and the photos were good and for a foreign tourist who didn't know much about the Beatles it would be good however I... More

At first thought this was a tad expensive £14.99 each entrance fee , You are supplied with headphones which are available in various languages . These give a good insight into the whole Beatles History , The Cavern Club set up is the exact replica especially as we had been to the Cavern Club the day before which is a... More

I agree with others, a must for Beatles fans. A great way to learn the story of the Beatles, their upbringing, education, family life and history as a band and also other musicians in Liverpool during this time. Magical. Highly recommend.

Great for fans of the fab four! The headphones supplied gave a good insight into the displays and there was everything Beatles related you could wish for in the shop. Overpriced though in my opinion, almost £30 for two of us.

Booked the full visit for my husband and I as part of our Beatles weekend (we also stayed at the Hard Days Night Hotel). However, we were a little disappointed with the Beatles Story. The audio guide was too long winded and it meant you either listened to that or read the descriptions on the walls. One or the other... More
