Egri Road – Beatles Museum was established in Hotel Korona, in the heart of the historic town of Eger.
Guests can get a glimpse of the life and career of the band and its members in the frames of a professional guided tour, which provides an experience supported by up-to-date technical solutions. Films and contemporary newsreels are played on screens and the songs of the band can be listened to through headphones, whereas contemporary media publications, garments, models and limited edition rarities are displayed in the showcases. The monumental show of the Sgt. Pepper album, various games and photo-taking activities take the visitors back to the legendary sixties.
This museum is a must-see for Beatles fans. The owners spent apparently a considerable time collecting all the gadgets, magazines and artifacts related to the Liverpool Four. The visit starts with a 12-minutes long short movie about the childhood of the Beatles (that was in Hungarian but might be available in other languages as well). Afterwards you start your visit at the ground level where all the information is available in both Hungarian and English. There’re lots of photos, covers, etc. within a relatively tiny place, I must admit after visiting the Beatles museum on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg I still learned a lot of new things and never had this intense Beatles experience.

There are relics from all over the world and not only albums or concert tickets but pins, clocks and even porcelain. The exhibition is very detailed, the guides are very kind and there are a lot of possibilities for interactive engagement. Totally recommended. (rumour has it that sometimes, one of the guides just grabs a guitar, sits in front of the building and sings Beatles songs 🙂 (h3rryPick3r)
