I went to The Beatles Story on a weekend break. I love Liverpool and as I had not been to The Beatles Story before I decided to go. I am not a Beatles fan and it hasnt converted me into being a fan either but I found it very interesting and found the white room very moving. It was probably... More

I was so surprised at how good the tour is. Paul's sister narrates and gives family background. Everyone around me was having such a good time. You can take pictures and no one yells at you. the price is good. So much fun that we are dancing and rocking together. The tour ends in Starbucks and the gift shop. The... More

Visited with my mum who grew up to the music of the Beatles and she loved it, even had a little dance with strangers in the Cavern replica, I on the other hand, despite enjoying the music and being quite fascinated by the whole mania it created found it dreary. In fact it reminded me of those history lessons at... More

If you hadn't read about the Beatles life story before, this will tell you all about it - where they were born and grew up, how they got together, information about their careers, as Beatles and after, with short movie clips here and there, lots of photos, and of course, Beatles music. I was visiting with two teenage boys and... More

There us lots to see, good write ups, comprehensive commentary. A good trip down memory Lane for Beatles fans. At times the music system was so loud it was difficult to hear the commentary, even with the volume on loud. Overall worth doing while in Liverpool.

I loved this museum, dedicated to my favorite group. The best were the Beatles quotes and John Lennon's white piano. The museum itself is not that big, but interesting. After the visit go to the Cavern street to have complete overview :-).

The Beatles Story is a great introduction to the lives of the Fab Four. You can't come to Liverpool and not visit this! The price was good, and included an audio tour. The location at Albert Dock makes for a fun day of exploring that historic area. As for the "Story", the layout was brilliant, showcasing their lives, with each... More

How can you come to Liverpool and not do something "Beatles?" The Beatles Story is well put together, multimedia chronological docutainment. While by necessity, much of what's on exhibit are reproductions of the originals, it does give you a real sense of the transition of four working class Liverpool lads from Skittles band, to Beatlemania to world-wide cultural behemoths.

The Beatles are such a key part of Liverpool's history, I don't think any visit to the city is complete without paying tribute to them, and The Beatles Story does this exceptionally well. I am a huge Beatles fan, but my husband and son (age 20) are not particularly, but we all loved this museum/experience. The focus is mainly on... More

A great attraction to visit when going to Liverpool, even if your not a fan of the Beatles. Full of interesting facts and great audio guide to tell the story of the Beatles.
