    Visit: Magical Beatles Museum, 23 Mathew Street, Liverpool L2 6RE England

    The Cavern Quarter is a must visit for any tourist visiting Liverpool. From Worldwide recognition to local Liverpudlians, you cannot say Mathew Street without thinking 'The Beatles' the biggest selling rock and roll band of all time.  Summer 2018 saw the opening of the authentic and original Magical History Museum - A Fab Four experience. Brainchild of avid Beatles enthusiast Roag Aspinall-Best, the museum was 10 years in the planning and 60 years in the making.

    First floor 1959-1962

    Mona Best wins some money on a racehorse and the original plans for the Casbah Coffee Club signal the opening of the first Rock and Roll club in Liverpool and the first live venue for Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Best. Neil Aspinall’s membership card to the club, the first home-made Quarrymen poster and the acoustic guitar used for the after show jam sessions all help paint an intimate picture of the boys very early years and their quest for stardom.

    Pete’s leather gear, Allan William’s business card and the recreation of the prison cell together with Paul and Pete’s original police statements following their arrest for arson serve as a reminder of the helter skelter ride that was Hamburg. Original microphones, guitars, bass guitar speakers and the earliest ever colour footage of The Beatles performing live trace their journey from Casbah to Cavern and their new manager Brian Epstein’s business card and now famous telegram evidence their transformation from leathers to suits.

    Second floor 1963-1966

    Sees the Beatles last trip to Hamburg and the Star Club, their first radio performance, British tour itineraries typed at Brian Epstein’s office and the Love Me Do sessions culminating in Pete Best’s departure from the band. Please Please Me is released and, as documented in the original programme on display, The Beatles appear at the Royal Variety Performance.

    Hard Day’s Night and Help are released and John Lennon “borrows” an item from the set of Help which can be seen on display along with his harmonica, the gifts the Beatles are given when they meet Elvis Presley and George’s matador hat from their Spanish trip.The white cello from Blue Jay Way and the signed Revolver album signal a new direction for the band taking them off the road and into the studio.

    3rd floor 1967-1970

    A walk past the garden furniture from John’s Surrey home takes the visitor to the medals that he wore on the cover of their ground breaking album “Sgt Peppers” and the cash box award also featured on the cover.

    “Yellow Submarine” is celebrated with hand painted figures and a blue meanie sketch from one of the original artists. The diamond award is one of many awards on display at the museum presented the Beatles for millions of record sales. The exhibition concludes with original record industry awards for the last of their work together- Let it be, Beatles 1 and the Anthology.

    The Beatles museum is on Matthew street just down from the Cavern club and is an absolute must see for anyone interested in the history of the band. There are great displays of early memorabilia and be sure to check out their flight itinerary from the summer of 1964. 22,000

    We didn’t know what to expect, as there’s so much Beatles stuff out there, but this was just amazing. As lifelong fans & collectors we didn’t expect to be enlightened.... but we were! The controversy over the replacement of Pete ...media has not been entirely truthful about it,

    We very much enjoyed this 3-storey tribute to the Beatles and their history. Their music was the soundtrack to our lives! This museum feels more personal than the "Beatles Story" across town, but if you have the time and love the Beatles, it's worth seeing both.
