About

Featuring a collection of over 300 rare and authentic items across three floors, the Magical Beatles Museum is an incredible journey through The Beatles’ early days in Liverpool and Hamburg, their rise to worldwide fame and their innovative studio years!

Located in a Grade II listed building in the heart of the world-famous Mathew Street, the Magical Beatles Museum offers a new perspective on the greatest rock and roll band of all time.

What can be seen at the museum?

At the Magical Beatles Museum visitors are given exclusive access to this previously unseen collection of rare memorabilia spanning from the band’s inception to Beatlemania and beyond. Items on display include, George Harrisons Futurama guitar (used on their first shows and recording sessions), Beatles drum kits, the earliest ever colour footage of the Beatles performing, personal letters, the original police log documenting the security arrangements for the Ed Sullivan Show, original seats from Shea Stadium, props from Help, Hard Day’s Night and Yellow Submarine and so much more never before seen memorabilia. 

The exhibition is constantly being added to and has now grown to become the greatest Beatles’ experience available in the world today.

Where does the collection come from?

“Sixty years in the making and ten years in the planning”

The collection belongs to Roag Aspinall-Best. He has been a collector of Beatles memorabilia for over thirty years.

Roag’s father was Neil Aspinall. Neil was the Beatles road manager and confidante and later became head of Apple Corps, spearheading such Beatle ventures as Beatles 1, Let It Be Naked, The Anthology and Love (cirque du soleil). The Beatles counted Neil as their friend and he was trusted by them implicitly. Neil was surrounded by the Beatles and so, throughout his life, was Roag.

Roag’s brother is Pete Best. He was a member of the Beatles for two years from 1960 – 1962 and was in for the ride from the Casbag Coffee Club through to Hamburg, the Cavern and ultimately Abbey Road Studios. Pete’s insights into the early years are without doubt of significant importance to the legend that is the Beatles.

Roag’s mother was Mona Best. As the founder of the Casbah Coffee Club, the first rock and roll club in Liverpool, Mona has been dubbed the “Mother of Merseybeat”. She provided the Beatles with a venue to practice, play and perform in that Paul McCartney affectionately refers to as “our club”. She managed many of their early business affairs and amongst many other things championed their return to Hamburg after their deportation.
