The Beatles Story

The Beatles Story, Liverpool

In case you couldn’t already tell from the thousands of references to the Fab 4 all over the city, the Beatles originated in Liverpool.

You can check out their stories here. From humble beginnings to fame and fortune only known by few musicians in history, The Beatles are the epitome of pop stars. The Beatles Story is the world’s largest permanent exhibition detailing the history of how the band became one of the world’s most famous musical groups of all time. The exhibition features pictures, interviews, and memorabilia from all throughout The Beatles’ story.

Best things to see at The Beatles Story

Inside, after a slightly hefty admission fee, you can follow their trajectory, passing through detailed replicas of significant locations like Casbah Coffee Club, The Cavern Club, Nems Record Shop, and their recording studios. Step into the set of the music video for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and explore the Yellow Submarine. The audio guide helps lead you through the museum, and even if you’re not a Beatles fan (unclear why you’re in Liverpool then but ok, sure), you’ll learn about the five (yes, five) Beatles, their rise to fame, and their eventual separation.
