Full description
The experience begins by exploring 1959 to 1962, when the Casbah Coffee Club signaled 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 color footage of The Beatles performing live, trace their journey from Casbah to Cavern. See manager Brian Epstein’s business card and now famous telegram evidence of their transformation from leathers to suits. 

Continue to the second floor for 1963 to 1966. Sees the Beatles last trip to Hamburg, 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. When Please Please Me was released, as documented in the original programme on display, The Beatles appear at the Royal Variety Performance. Hard Day’s Night and Help were released and John Lennon borrowed an item from the set of Help, which can be seen on display along with his harmonica. The gifts the Beatles were given when they meet Elvis Presley and George’s matador hat from their Spanish trip are here. 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.

Complete the tour on the third floor, 1967 to 1970. A walk past the garden furniture from John’s Surrey home takes you to the medals that he wore on the cover of their groundbreaking 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.
