Strange, a Beatles museum in Alkaar. But very interesting. If you want the complete story behind the only Beatles performance in the Netherlands, or the myth of Paul McCartney's death, just go there. It's not big, but that's what makes it great.

It’s more of a memorabilia collection than a museum. It was 5 euros and has a bathroom (with the requisite request to pay .50 euros), so if it’s rainy or you’re in the area it’s nice to stop in.

What a gem, doesn’t look much from outside but wow it’s huge. Loads of Beatles stuff in a huge warehouse. Small cafe, gift shop and a big collection of vinyl,CD and books of all musical genres on sale. A must if you are in Alkmaar

Loved visiting this museum but don't know if you'd be too keen if you aren't already a Beatles fan. But who doesn't love The Beatles?? We spent about an hour here and covered it all. From a UK perspective it was interesting to read about...More

The tour is really worth the money. You basically walk through the history of the Beatles and get a real feeling about their life and struggles. You can listen to it in all languages and even if you are not a fan you'll definitely love...More

What an outstanding collection! And the owner of all these treasures is a very interesting person. He remembers all of his collectibles and has plenty of stories and anectodes to tell. Worth to visit!
