Where I stayed
After finding our way down to Alberts Dock we took the tour through the Beatles Story. It was awsome to see where they came from and how many times they played at bars before they hit the big show. Learning about 'The Cavern' and how many shows they played in that dark little basement was amazing (292). It was gross to hear that they would pack so many people in there that the walls would literally leak from all the condensation coming off peoples bodies
The museum was set up in chronological order from when they met as teenagers to when they finally broke up and continued on to follow their solo careers and what they've done in the past 30 years.
We then walked to the slave and marine museum which displayed how Liverpool had its role in the slave trade. We saw some very disturbing things about what they had to go through.
We then saw huge models of ships that had either been built in Liverpool or connected to it some how, the main ones being the Titanc, Lusitania, and the Forgotten Empress.
We still had another half of the beatles museum to see and a 4D video about the Fab Four.
Well the 4D video was terrible, it had nothing to with the beatles except their songs. The rest of the museum was about a tribute to John Lennon by his son and ex-wife.That was pretty cool to walk through and read their stories from the sidelines of the famous band. Then there was also a gallery of pictures that were taken by a very young photographer when the Beatles were first starting, before only big business people and professionals were allowed near them. Apparently he had put his work in a storage box in his attic and it sat there until around 2005 or something (can't remember the exact year) when he developed them to put in this gallery in Liverpool.
Walking around all day long can get tiring, but good thing we weren't too tired from it this night because while we were up reading in our room at about 10pm the room next door turned what we can only describe as rave music or remixes on on their stereo
