What wasn't there too like - as all 4 of us like The Beatles. Great for the kids to learn about them and there is also lots of other things to do nearby.

Great info about the evolution of the Beatles from beginning to break up. Set up with recreations of the places around Liverpool where the Beatles got their start. Interesting memorabilia, but not a lot of it. The Beatles 4 d movie at Pier Head is fun for small children. Cartoon featuring Beatles songs- no actual Beatles footage,etc. disappointing and expensive... More

Very few actually beatles items for the price of admission. Really cant warrant the money needed for a cramped walk around of info easily found on the net. Maybe if it was a bit cheaper it would be ok, but at the minute not worth it.

The Beatles Story gives you a complete view of the Beatles history. It covers information on their private lives, on their years as members of the greatest band of all times, and of the years after the split. Fully documented, with visual, written, listening documuntation.

In my youth, I was a massive Beatles fan and saw them perform 3 times so I was looking forward to this. There was a lot of memorabilia, a good audio guide, newsreel footage, replica Cavern club, interviews with people connected to the Beatles e.g. Cynthia Lennon, Paul McCartney,Pete Best, George Martin and Gerry Marsden among others. Snatches of Beatles... More

We didn't plan our visit so had not booked tickets, we waited over an hour to get in, the most frustrating part of this was that everytime we got to the head of the queue a bus load of tourists turned up and went straight in. Once we got inside t was very good, would have liked more actual memorabilia,... More

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
