  • 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.
