I'm sure, if you are a dedicated fan, then this is a great place to visit. We are "interested" - BUT...........this was too much for us and we found ourselves irritated because there was no "quick route" round the exhibition. This was a "not for us experience" - just as the 2 hour "blue badge" guided CITY TOUR had been immediately prior to visiting the Beatles Story........the guide had nothing to say about Liverpool apart from the Beatles - at least we have a 2nd day available to appreciate a wider story

Firstly £50 for a family ticket we were expecting a really great display of memorabilia and unknown stories about the Beatles. What we got was a few recreations of places and events that weren’t anything that couldn’t be found on a Google search. If I had paid half the cost I would not have been as disappointed. We shuffled along in a boiling hot underground tunnel looking at small bits and pieces and replicas and came out uninspired. There was more to see at the Liverpool museum for a £5 donation. I would struggle to recommend this to anyone even a massive Beatles fan.

A good museum. A little small. A bit muddled up and didnt quite flow. But if you know your stuff that shouldn't matter.

The kids section at the end and the cafe are great. Great staff too.

A story that lets you see the other side of the rumours and media tales. I was made aware of a number of facts that I didn't know.

A bit pricy to gain entrance but worth the trip as your only going to do it once.

We were really disappointed with this experience. The space was too small for the amount of people going through but the main problem was the lack of real Beatles artefacts on show. Most of the exhibition consists of mockups and recreations

Many thanks for your comments and we very much appreciate all our customer feedback. Our exhibition is an experience where we immersively tell the story of the Fab Four from Liverpool through recreations of the places and moments along their journey with the aim of educating visitors about the world's greatest band. There are a number of key artefacts shown within the exhibition, however these are to add value to the story and not delivered in a museum style. We can get particularly busy on some dates and this is managed through pre-booked timeslots and by our fabulous guest services team. We are continually reviewing our exhibition and take into account our visitor's feedback so we can make future improvements. Thanks again for your review.

This was my second visit and I was not dis appointed.
Admission(seniors) was £13 which is a bit steep. The museum traces the story of the Beatles from their original incarnation as the Quarrymen to their split.
There is much to read and you can take also the audio guide( available in different languages) for more information.
They started from very humble beginnings and many lesser known people were involved in their journey to the top that most of us have never heard of.
The re-creation of the Cavern provides a great backdrop to their story.Indeed before they started at the Cavern -they really got going at the Casbah-a coffee shop in the basement of someones house!
There are so many twists and turns in their story in particular the sacking of the unfortunate Pete Best as drummer etc
A most enlightening an uplifting experience and also for me a wallow in nostalgia!
A must for everybody -allow at least 2 hours.!

Not a massive Beatles fan but was interesting 90 mins. Not much new to know as the story is so well known but laid out in a interesting way. Not too busy when we went but can imagine it is busy at times.

Staff so very helpful and welcoming, they are so very proud and seem to enjoy their job. The audio easy to use and very interesting. A good couple of hours and a cafe at the finish of the experience. Would recommend.

An interesting enough visit, but as others have said, a lot of the stuff on display was reproduction. Also the admission charge is too high. However, all in all, Liverpool is a great city to visit.
