I've only been there once (in 2001) - 3.5 hours waiting for my room to be available for a stay watching the Reds vs the Indians. I thought it was great! They had two special sections dedicated to the Beatles. One was about Stuart Stutcliffe showing all his work as an artist, many of it from his time in Germany before his death. The other exhibit was on John Lennon occupying the "tower" - three levels of writings, artifacts, etc. I went to the gift shop and purchased a umbrella, writing pen in the shape of a drumstick and a t-shirt - which I still have. I've been trying to get back ever since but haven't found the time plus I want to dedicate the same amount of time going thru the exhibits.
