How can you put this place into words? It has everything for the Beatles fan and, believe it or not, for those who aren't fans. Personally, i wasn't until I visited and now, I'm utterly hooked. From the early beginnings until the bitter break-up and their individual careers, there's pieces of musical history aplenty in this journey through the Beatles'... More

I'm not a massive fan of The Beatles but we went for a look whilst visiting Liverpool. The entrance fee was a bit much at £14.95 but we had downloaded a 50% off voucher from the Albert Dock website so that made the price more than acceptable. You're given a headset with a control box when you enter and this... More

Wonderful exhibition with amazing amount of original artefacts etc. Loved the way it was set out with some actual settings accompanied by Beatles songs. Would definately recommend visiting it especially if you remember those wonderful days of the 60s.

We visited the Beatles Story last Saturday on a day out in Liverpool. On arriving we were kept from entering by a rope across the entrance and left like that for almost 20 minutes with no real explanation of what was happening. I can only assume they were full but the lady who seemed to be in charge neglected to... More

If you know anything about the Beatles then you will want to visit this fabulous place. Extremely well laid out exhibition, excellent presentation and interpretation of the exhibits. Lots to see and hear, it's not a museum but as the name says…a story. Toilets were clean and the whole place looked as if it is cared for. Lots of expensive... More

The place has 36 exhibits with an audio guide - all inclusive 14.95 pounds. Although the place doesn't talk of any of the juicy gossip or the discord within the group... It surely will keep Beatles' fans and others entertained and on the hook for a good 2-3 hours...

Worth going to see if you have a spare couple of hours! Went with a group of friends who are huge Beatles fans they loved it! Not a huge fan myself but still enjoyed the day! We got discount priced tickets from our hotel and saved us queuing for Tickets at the museum!

A very comprehensive coverage not only of the Beatles themselves but bringing back the feeling of their era. The reconstruction of the events and background to their story is handled very clearly and easy to follow. Did not use headphones as think these detract from following the story yourself which is fully and clearly illustrated. The visit in a quiet... More
