This weekend thousands of Beatles fans will make a pilgrimage to Liverpool for the International Beatles Week and Mathew Street Festival. Some may find their way to the Walker Art Gallery to see Stuart Sutcliffe’s Hamburg Painting No 2.  

You might not know this but there are lots of other Beatles related objects in National Museums Liverpool’s collections, which are not currently on display at any of our venues. So for the first time the highlights, including items from the collections of the Customs and Excise Museum and the Museum of Liverpool, have been brought together for an online Beatles exhibition.

To get yourself in the mood for the ‘Fab Four’ festivities this weekend you can also try our Beatles Games and find out which Beatle you are. In case you were wondering, I’m George.
