  • Smack bang in the middle of the wonderful Albert Dock, The Beatles Story unfolds in linear fashion, going at your own pace listening through individual headsets as you walk through a series of sets...  more »
  • Interesting to learn more about a band I knew little about. The experience is quite a long one, wouldn't recommend for kids. The audio tour is helpful, but again a little long. Lots of things to look....  more »
  • It misses the essential ingredient that made the Beatles great - their incredible musical legacy. Disappointing.  more »

  • I wouldn't queue to meet God. But the lady wife wanted to go in and as I had no desire to feel her wrath We queued. And it was worth the wait. This place is packed with Beatles memorabilia and items, it leads you through the early days of The Beatles and tells the whole story with clever displays interactive guides. There's even a mock up of the Cavern. If you a Beatles fan it's worth going to - even if you have to queue.
  • Love how the museum was laid out and the audio visual guide (included in the package) as you walked. Was interesting to see how the Beatles formed and how the careers of the individual panned out. Was impressed with the attempts to recreate some of the streets, pubs/bars and the media/newspaper offices. A lot of thought was put into the conceptualization of the museum to provide visitors with a full understanding of the Beatles. Staff were very friendly too.
  • This museum is a bit pricey but worth every penny. It is must and if I were to recommend anywhere in Liverpool It would be here. It is very well designed and you are given a headset which takes you through the band's history from when they discovered each other at a village fete to John's White room.
  • Was an impressive tour. The audio was included and it had a plethora of memorabilia throughout the exhibition. They had recreated certain areas where the Beatles performed and hung out to drink. Was very good. It's very enjoyable.
  • If you are a real Beatles fan and would like to enjoy everything this museum has to offer (and make your money's worth), I suggest you take a whole morning (or afternoon) to visit it. I spent 3 and a half hours there and could have stayed a bit longer. This should be the first place to go in Liverpool cause it will make you eager to see the spots in real life and will help to plan the visit further.
