The Beatles Story Exhibition

The Beatles Story is an award-winning visitor attraction and the world's largest permanent exhibition purely devoted to the lives and times of The Beatles.

Located in the Fab Four's hometown of Liverpool, England on the stunning UNESCO World heritage site at the Albert Dock, The Beatles Story takes visitors on an atmospheric journey through the lives, times, culture and music of The Beatles.

Be transported on an incredible immersive journey through the story of how four young lads from Liverpool were propelled to the dizzy heights of fame and fortune from their humble childhood beginnings. Replicas of The Casbah Club, The Cavern Club, and Abbey Road Studios authentically capture the early 60s, allowing you to personally experience the very places that helped make The Beatles the greatest band in the world.

The Beatles Story was founded on May 1, 1990. Since that moment 4,000,000 people from over 100 countries have visited the award-winning attraction. In 2008, Merseytravel a government owned transit organisation purchased the attraction for £8m. An estimated 300,000 visitors now attend annually.
