Het Beatles Museum, Alkmaar

Specialty Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
Meet John, Paul, George, and Ringo at Het Beatles Museum, dedicated to probably the most popular band of the 20th century. Arguably the largest collection of Beatles items collected by a single person, the museum displays original band member clothing, albums, instruments, personal documents, toys, books, and comic books inspired by the four iconic musicians. Although the band never visited or played in this town, the local collector and die-hard fan Azing Moltmaker managed to compile a big collection of all things Beatles. The onsite store sells all kinds of Beatles merchandise, from books to bootleg CDs.

  • I found it strange, a Beatles museum in Alkmaar. However, once you realize it's really one man's collection of memorabilia that clears up the context a bit. It's interesting, It's not big, and...  more »
  • This museum is unique and in 4 years they have moved to a new location with more space, also expanding to include now a section on Elvis Presley and Marlyn Monroe, though there are no connections...  more »
  • Strange, a Beatles museum in Alkaar. But very interesting. If you want the complete story behind the only Beatles performance in the Netherlands, or the myth of Paul McCartney's death, just go there.....  more »
  • Amazing how someone can have such a large private collection. The owner is the one you buy tickets from and is interesting to talk to. Easy to spend over and hour inside and the ticket price is low. The conspiracy section is very fun. Note that it is almost all memorabilia and not items owned by the Beatles. Still an impressive collection.
  • Fantastic collection of real Beatles memorabilia and even a few authentic items used by the band themselves. It's privately-owned but is an extensive and polished experience.You can learn a lot about the iconic band here, even for the dedicated fan! Big parking lot nearby. Entry is cheap and the gift-shop is cool.
  • Lots of Beatles memorabilia. Few authentic items. Very enthusiastic staff that maintain the collection and got even more of this stuff at their homes! The story of the Beatles visting The Netherlands is told extensively. Rumour of Paul dying is highlighted nicely. They have a shop that sells vinyl. Lots of nice stuff there. Put on your coat in winter. It is freezing there then.....
  • Beautiful experience! AFAIK the biggest, private collection about the Beatles and amazing stuff to see and to discover. When we visited the museum in 2017 we got a tour, where the owner explained how he got all the memorabilia and it was like diving into the 60s. MUST SEE FOR BEATLES FANS!
  • Fantastic displays and information. Unreal.
