As well as all of the above you can now also take a trip back in time and experience the magic of the Beatles in their own dedicated Mathew Street museum. Watch a move as we take you inside!
The Magical Beatles Museum is expanding later this year to open a new café and bar after enjoying a bumper first six months. The Magical Beatles Museum was opened in July and hopes the new facilities, together with the relocation of the Liverpool Tourist Information Centre to its Matthew Street building in November, will further boost visitor numbers.
The attraction was launched by Roag Best, brother of ‘fifth Beatle’ Pete Best, in July 2018 and has since enjoyed increasing numbers and rave reviews.
Having secured and renovated the five-story Victorian Warehouse where the museum is based, Best now hopes to boost visitors by at least 70 per cent over the next 12 months, creating 20 new jobs.
The concept takes visitors on an interactive tour of Beatles history, with Roag’s 1,200 item personal collection telling the story each step of the way. Rare finds on display include Pete Best’s drumkit, George Harrison’s Futurama guitar and John Lennon’s Sgt. Pepper medals.
Best said: “Growing up, I wasn’t aware of how famous the Beatles truly were, I just loved spending time with my four friends – John, Paul, George and Ringo.
“A lot of items that I’ve held on to from this period are now of huge interest to fans, and it’s great to be able to give people a unique insight into the band’s history. We’ve been overwhelmed by the interest from tourists over the past six months and it’s only set to increase going forward!
