Avid fans of the Beatles tend to take the typical vacation route of visiting various famous sites in England, such as Abbey Road or the attractions in Liverpool. However, for those who want to find a new destination off the beaten path of Fab Four tours, a new museum recently opened in Argentina is showing off an extensive collection of memorabilia.
Located in Buenos Aires, the museum created by 53-year-old Rodolfo Vazquez features thousands of items related to the foursome from England. The obsession began for the Argentine accountant when he was just 10 years old.
"With the song 'In My Life,' I fell in love with the Beatles," Vazquez told The Associated Press. He holds the 2001 Guinness World Record for owning the largest collection of the legendary rock band's memorabilia in the world.
According to the new source, visitors will be able to view items like a check signed by drummer Ringo Starr, a large collection of album covers, toys, figurines and a brick from The Cavern Club, where the band was discovered in the 1960s.
