Reasonably good value as there is a wealth of material here - almost too much to take in. It was quite difficult to read the notices, look at the displays, listen to the audio guide, and listen to the music played in each area all at the same time! The re-creations of significant places like the Casbah and the Cavern have been done in painstaking detail, allowing visitors to get a real sense of time and place. The only thing that disappointed me was the 4D cinema experience which was very clever and gimmicky but rather pointless. Why not concentrate on the music, rather than invent a weak and irrelevant narrative?

We really enjoyed The Beatles Story. My partner is a huge fan and there's not much that he doesn't already know about them and so it was less an informative visit for him, more a compliment to his knowledge. I certainly learnt some new things. We also visited the Elvis and Us exhibition at the Pier Head venue (there are two parts to the exhibition if you choose to purchase the 'Experience' ticket which is not necessarily obvious at first if you're not from Liverpool). We found this exhibition to be very good too. What I would say is that the 4D part isn't anything to write home about but as it was included in the ticket price we didn't lose anything. It certainly didn't take away from the overall experience, but I don't think it added to it either. A visit to The Beatles Story is a must for any visitor to the home of The Beatles.

Even if you are not a Beatles fan this tour was incredibly informative and nostalgic. Get the headset for the audio tour. It took about 2 hours for my wife and I to complete.

Have to visit this if you are in liverpool! You can have an audio guide for this and read your way around, lots of facts that people might not know about the beatles. Even my 11 year old learned lots and loved the exhibition.

I don't know what I really thought I expected but I know that I left feeling underwhelmed by the Beatles Story. Considering the price to get in, I thought there would me more things to see. It's well laid out and there were some interesting points, but I think it's definitely aimed at real die-hard fans, not just those with a general interest like me.
