The nation’s first Beatles museum is scheduled to open in March of 2009 in Branson’s Starlite Theater. Louise Harrison, sister of the late George Harrison, who founded and manages the Liverpool Legends Beatles tribute band, is opening the museum. She will supply the museum with memorabilia from her personal collection that has never been publicly displayed before, including postcards and letters written by George Harrison, and early rejection letters from some less than prescient radio stations that professed no interest in the Beatles music. The only other public Beatles museum in the world is called the Beatles Story and it is located in Liverpool, England. The new Branson museum, however, is expected to surpass the Beatles Story museum in size.
After enjoying the museum, Beatles fans can stay and listen to classic Beatles songs performed by Beatles imitators, the Liverpool Legends, in the lovely Starlite Theatre, which includes a five story glass atrium decorated with strawberry fields, yellow submarines, London red phone booths, and the familiar Abbey Road Crosswalk. The Liverpool Legends perform hits from the band’s early days on through to songs from the later solo careers of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison.
