From the Branson Daily News:

The nation’s only Beatles museum is set to open in Branson by March 2009, if not sooner.

Louise Harrison, George Harrison’s sister and founder of Liverpool Legends, a Beatles tribute band, is opening the museum.

Liverpool Legends member Marty Scott, who portrays George Harrison, said they are shooting to have the museum, which will be inside the Starlite Theatre on 76 Country Boulevard, open by the time the spring season begins in March, but said they could open it as early as this fall if all goes well. Liverpool Legends perform nightly at the Starlite Theatre.

“We’ve got this giant theater with this giant atrium, so why not do this,” Scott said.

The museum will be filled with Beatles memorabilia from around the world, including item’s from Louise Harrison’s personal collection which have never been displayed to the public before.
