A really well organised and informative exhibition . The audio commentary was free and added to the experience, thought at times I needed to turn off the commentary in order to concentrate on the information around me . I particularly enjoyed the replica Cavern and the audio interviews of fans who had seen the Beatles play there. Our visit lasted around 90 minuets though we could stayed longer if we wished . It’s a shame you can only use the cafe at the end as we got there slightly early and would have liked to use it before. All in all well worth the money, would recommend a visit .

Comprehensive tour of a lot of points of interest but the highlight for us was Mathew street, the Cavern and the music bars, brilliant. Our guide was Roy and he was brilliant, knew so much and such a nice guy. I think we were very lucky to have him as our guide.

Interesting and well arranged journey through various chapters in the Beatles story, using easily-managed earphone audio guides that take you each step of the way. Well arranged sets evocatively capture the mood of the times.

Overall a wonderful experience. One gets an immersive Beatles experience

the audio was great and I learned things I didn't know before
