One of Liverpool’s more recent attractions with a Beatles theme is the Liverpool Beatles Museum (formerly the Magical Beatles Museum). Roag Aspinall-Best, Pete Best’s original drummer and the owner of a sizable collection of Beatles-related memorabilia, came up with the idea for the museum, which was first known as the Magical History Museum.
The Casbah Coffee Club, where the band first formed, was operated by Roag and Pete Best’s mother, Mona Best. Roag began his collection when he found the original Casbah Coffee Club sign that his mother had put in a trash. Neil Aspinall, who served as the Beatles’ road manager and later served as the head of the record label Apple Corps, was Roag’s father.
Roag has built an unparalleled collection over the course of 60 years because to growing up in a family that was so closely associated with the Beatles.
Visiting the Liverpool Beatles Museum
Right on Mathew Street is where you’ll find the Liverpool Beatles Museum. The Grapes, a nearby bar where the Beatles would go after performing at the Cavern Club a few doors away, is right next door.
Although it is a somewhat pricey destination with a £17 admission fee, it would be a shame to leave the city without visiting this museum if you are a Beatles fan who has traveled far to see all the Beatles sights.
For true Beatles fans, a trip to the Liverpool Beatles Museum is a must. However, Liverpool is home to many more Beatles attractions, and the total cost of admission to all of the city’s Beatles attractions is close to £100. If you’re a fan, you should also go on the Magical Mystery Tour, National Trust tours of John and Paul’s boyhood homes, Pete Best’s Casbah Coffee Club tour, and Cavern visit.
Most visitors stay in the museum for between one and two hours, but if you want to explore all of Liverpool’s Beatles attractions, you’ll probably need about three days.
