With cameras flashing and reporters jostling, they were whisked into Manhattan amid the screams, shouts and tears of New York area teens, braving the cold for a mere glimpse of the band.  Then, that Sunday, the veritable king of the television variety show, Ed Sullivan, introduced them to a captivated American audience of more than 73 million viewers—at the time a television record.  And just like that Beatlemania was upon us.

Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles! brings us back to the early ‘60s when rock & roll was re-energized-by four lads from Liverpool.  The exhibit covers the period from February 7th 1964 through December-1966—the years Beatle-mania ran rampant in America.

During this time the band affected nearly every aspect of pop culture, including fashion, art, advertising, media, and, of course, music.  On display are many Beatles-related pop culture artifacts from the period, as well as correspondence, instruments, posters, photographs, interviews, interactive displays, and a booth in which visitors can sing-along with Ringo Starr.
