No tour of Liverpool is complete without taking in some Beatles history. The hometown of this legendary band, Liverpool houses the award-winning Beatles Story exhibition. Visit the rock-themed attraction – spread over two sites – to learn about the band and its lasting impact on the history of music. Full of fun memorabilia, rare photographs and interactive exhibits, the Beatles Story is full for all ages! Ticket includes shuttle service between sites.
Relive the era of Beatlemania with an interactive and atmospheric tour of the Beatles Story exhibition. Originally constructed at Liverpool’s UNESCO-listed Albert Dock, its overwhelming popularity demanded that a second location be built. Your entrance pass provides full museum access to the two sites, the other situated down the river at Pier Head.
To begin you Beatles Story experience, make your way to either location in Liverpool, though it is recommended you start with a Beatles history tour at Albert Dock. Wander the colorful exhibition with the insightful audio guide, narrated by John Lennon’s sister. Trace the lads through their Liverpool childhoods and early band days to the peak of fame and beyond, then head to the Discovery Zone for some interactive fun.
Next head to the Pier Head site to take the Fab 4D experience, a combination ride and 3D film loaded with Beatles music, special effects and fascinating history. Afterwards, head to the British Invasion exhibit to pour over authentic memorabilia and the Beatles Hidden Gallery to see a collection of rare tour photos.
Explore the museum at your own pace, stopping to browse genuine artifacts, engage in savvy interactive displays take a needed snack break (own expense) in the 60s-themed Starbucks located at Albert Dock. Don't leave without popping in to the souvenir shop, where you'll find the largest selection of Beatles goods in the world.
Well worth every penny. Very informative about the Beatles, how they got started, their producer and manager.
If you love the Beatles, you will love the Beatles Story museum experience. Lots of interesting Beatles history and items. Cool location on the Albert Dock and near the other Beatles attractions.
Albert dock is the main site although there are some exhibits at the Mersey Ferry Terminal
This was a great day out. Lots I didn't know about the Beatles from their early lives and all through their experiences in the UK and America and Europe.
Took about 4 hours to do this tour justice. Real good value for money. I would definitely recommend.
The Beatles Story Experience was a very well done tour. Get their early!!! I think it opens at 9:00 and nothing else is open at this time. I prepurchased the tour tickets on Viator, but upon arriving when it opened I was still told to stand in line with everyone buying their tickets. After explaining repeatedly that I had already bought the tickets the employee finally let me go in. I would have been furious had I come later and expected to stand in the long line to the museum while an uninformed employee kept telling me to wait in line.
A must do for any Beatle fan.
Fascinating for those who like the Beatles
So much fun! Didn't know what to expect but loved the presentation!
We throughly enjoyed the Beatles story and would certainly recommend to family and friends .
A very worthwhile visit two sites and lots of info about the Fab Four even to a couple of pensioners who had lived through that rea.
Highly recommended but a allow a few hours to get the most from it - it is NOT a whistle stop tour!!
