  • 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.

  • Highly recommended! I suggest booking on-line as the queue was very long (Easter Holidays - Tuesday). It takes about 2 hours if you walk around at leisure and read all the write-ups. You get a headset with recording that contains some very interesting facts. Some great memorabilia - well worth a visit
  • Absolutely worth visiting! The museum is wonderful in many ways. First of all the scenes look like they came straight from the sixties. They built several places such as the Casbah, the Cavern, an American tour scene, the yellow submarine and much more. It really is a unique way of telling the story of the Beatles. The music is omnipresent and the information given is often very interesting. The set up is a bit chaotic at times, it makes you feel you miss some parts, but I actually like the chaos. It suits the story of the Beatles. The staff is very friendly and the audio tour is very nice to have. However sometimes it is hard to combine the audio tour with the music playing and the scenes that also contain information. It is a lot of input, so take your time. Don't rush through if you feel like it is a bit too much. If you stroll through on your own pace, the scenes are absolutely amazing and worth your time and money.
  • Its one of the thing to do while in Liverpool. After this experience I love Liverpool even more. Lennon is an inspiration and the room dedicated to him is the best one. Grew up listening to Beatles and loved every minute here. The tour cost includes the guide and it's all so well organised.
  • We don't have a chance of going inside this little museum The Beatles. It will costs you of almost £16 adult rate for the entrance. I am sure if your a fan this price is nothing to you. Inside it is the history of Beatles beginning to stardom... Beside near by is their shop where you can buy souvenirs of the band... This is located in Albert Dock...
  • I'm not particularly a Beatles fan but I found this place absolutely fascinating and very entertaining. I now have a new appreciation for their music. It will take you much longer than you think to get round it if you want to read all the history and take it all in. It is very well thought out and detailed and I learnt so much I was not aware of. You can use your entrance ticket the next day if you find you can't get round it all in one go - especially if it's busy. The place has won awards and once your in its easy to understand why. It certainly brings home not just the importance they have in music history but the massive importance they have in the social history of this country and to some extent the world. The ques can be long to get in so try and go on a week day and be there for opening time. If you do have to wait it is worth being patient as it really is worth it.
