Britannia Vaults, Albert Dock, Liverpool L3 4AD, UK
The Beatles. I love their music but I don't know a huge amount about them. I went here with someone who speaks little English so he was able to have his guide headphones in his own language and it meant that he could really enjoy and get immersed in the whole experience. The experience takes you through the history of the Beatles from how they started to different members and how they became so famous. The headphones talk you through each exhibit and sometimes there are bonus videos that you can play if you want extra information. I wouldn't call myself a huge Beatles fan but I really enjoyed this place. Its a great place to spend a couple of hours and you can happily wander at your own pace. At the end there is a coffee shop which isn't too expensive and then a gift shop which is!!
Love how the museum was laid out and the audio visual guide (included in the package) as you walked. Was interesting to see how the Beatles formed and how the careers of the individual panned out. Was impressed with the attempts to recreate some of the streets, pubs/bars and the media/newspaper offices. A lot of thought was put into the conceptualization of the museum to provide visitors with a full understanding of the Beatles. Staff were very friendly too.
I wouldn't queue to meet God. But the lady wife wanted to go in and as I had no desire to feel her wrath We queued. And it was worth the wait. This place is packed with Beatles memorabilia and items, it leads you through the early days of The Beatles and tells the whole story with clever displays interactive guides. There's even a mock up of the Cavern. If you a Beatles fan it's worth going to - even if you have to queue.
This museum is a bit pricey but worth every penny. It is must and if I were to recommend anywhere in Liverpool It would be here. It is very well designed and you are given a headset which takes you through the band's history from when they discovered each other at a village fete to John's White room.
Was an impressive tour. The audio was included and it had a plethora of memorabilia throughout the exhibition. They had recreated certain areas where the Beatles performed and hung out to drink. Was very good. It's very enjoyable.
