Reasons for trip

Situated on Albert Dock this is a busy little museum in Liverpool. The entry fee was £14.95. The inside has audio tours in several languages which give facts about the Beatles, parts are made to look like Matthew street and the Cavern club and there are lots of documents on the walls. There are a number of exhibits and costumes on models as you make your way around and piped music in places, but, to be perfectly honest, it just didn't float my boat in any way. There is little for children to do until you get to the end, then they can colour and there is a keyboard on the floor, the exhibits seemed to be more documentary, although some sets were fine, others looked lacking, the history seemed more about Liverpool in the sixties than a time line of the Beatles, If short of time, I would stick to going to The cavern on Matthew street and maybe the Liverpool museum which is free. The highlight for me personally was going up to Pier head and seeing the film in 4D at the second site, this plays every 1/2 hour and lasts about 15 minutes. There is a lift, but this is at the end in the shop.
