  • I was 7 years ago, I was and now-because it's the only such place where is shown the entire history of Four from Liverpool-their school years, by the first concerts, CD, beatlesmanię, for information about the murder of John and the death of George. The necessary point of during a visit to Liverpool.

  • It is a great the Beatles museum. It follows the Beatles life through their teenage years to their first band manager and a record, being popular and touring new countries, finishing with their break up and solo careers. In this museum everyone has a chance to listen to the real testimonies of people who have seen/worked and witnessed their rise and fall. Every visitor is given a pair of headphones and a phone to pick for the certain memory while walking through the halls of a museum. Great place for true fans with a really big shop at the end. Only minus is a 16 pound entrance for a 1.5 hour tour.
  • A wonderfully thought out museum. The only down side is the people using audio guides, it's as if they plug in and remove their brains at the same time. They were often obstructive of exhibits and because they were wearing these there was often eerie silence in areas, as no music is played in some areas. Having said that, that was the only downside. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The whole experience was brilliant and acted as a wonderful timeline. Will definitely return for a second and perhaps third visit.
  • I was 14 when the Beatles exploded onto the music scene and grew up listening to them and their counterparts. I enjoyed the exhibition but I didn't learn anything about them that I didn't already know. Even when my headset gave up the ghost half way round I didn't miss it. Interesting if you have previously only had a brief knowledge of the band. You had to be there to really appreciate just how massive they were. For what other band would the BBC interrupt their main sports programme, Grandstand, to report their return from America?
  • Enjoyed the tour. Bought tickets online in advance; came with audio guide. Great walk down memory lane especially for those living in the era. Can be a bit emotional towards the end as the Beatles Story unfolds...
  • Incredible representation of Beatles life. Not too long so you won't get bored. Very nice and dynamic audio guide
