Beatles Story Liverpool

The Beatles Story Liverpool museum is an attraction that music fans won’t want to miss when traveling around England. Based in Liverpool’s historic Albert Dock area, this award-winning institution offers privileged insight into the life and times of the best-selling band in history – The Beatles. The museum has been expanded since it first opened in 1990, and its growth and popularity have led to the founding of a branch site. The second Beatles Story museum, or the Beatles Story Pier Head, is housed inside the Mersey Ferry Terminal. A shuttle bus offers a connection between the two museums, and if you prefer walking, you can stroll from one to the other in about 10 minutes.
