  • It's an expensive attraction, but full of memorabilia! There will be nothing new, so at the end could be less expensive  more »
  • I really Enjoyed the Beetle Story and Felt it was Really well Done. From Start to Finish they have got it Right and Information Detail is Super.  more »
  • My first time in Liverpool since I was a newborn 68 years ago, so this was very nice to see. The museum itself takes you down memory lane. Well worth a visit, even though I am more a Rolling Stones fa...  more »

  • It's all about the Beatles, unsurprisingly. I guess fans might be impressed with memorabilia and reconstructions, but much as I enjoyed the visit and the company I was with I was rather underwhelmed. Lacks interactivity and invites people to stand around reading info boards. Couldn't get into the John Lennon section as everybody wanted to read everything in there while the George Harrison section - where the info was much more interesting - was virtually empty...
  • I love the Beatles so I liked this place even before I visited it. It's really atmospheric museum for fans of The Great Liverpool Four. Last part of exebision is perfect. I almost cry)
  • A must see for any Beatles fan. The exhibits are fascinating and it's a lot of fun. Recommend pairing with the Magical Mystery Tour for a day out that will have you singing Beatles songs for weeks to come!
  • Great .. loved it.. thought we knew everything about the Beatles but nope.. learnt more interesting life stories. You need at least hour to your and half to get through it all properly. Don't rush through ..don't kids out. A must and recommended. Enjoy!
  • Interesting and informative. The audio-guide plays 1-2 min stories to accompany each room at the exhibition and gives background to their rise to fame and break up. Quite a few languages in selection but otherwise may be a bit dull if you can't understand the commentary.
