Anyone visiting Liverpool should not miss this. Our £10 was well worth it could have stayed for longer but had other tour booked.

A brilliant museum giving a great overview of British popular music since the war. Awesome collection of instruments and outfits and a useful audio guide to talk you through them. They also have a section full of Gibson/Epiphone guitars you can actually sit and play.
