The Get Back documentary offered an intimate fly-on-the-wall perspective of the sessions that led to the Beatles’ Let It Be album.

Now, music fans can get an even closer look thanks to Get Back to Let It Be, a new exhibit continuing through March 2023 at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Original instruments, clothing and handwritten lyrics seen in the film were procured by the Hall for the exhibit. The items help to create an immersive experience that carries the listener from the early rehearsals to recording and eventually, to their swan-song concert on the roof of Apple Corps.

Curator Craig Inciardi sharing thoughts on how the concept came together after first being discussed nearly 10 years ago: "Joel Peresman is the head of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation and he is also based in New York. 

He and I have been wanting to do an exhibit with the Beatles as a unit for a decade. Since the museum opened, we’ve had Beatles exhibits, but this is the first time that we have done an exhibit with all four principals working together with their record company, Apple. We had discussed various ideas over the last 10 years. 

This idea gained traction and we got a buy-in from all of the principals and Apple. We started working on this exhibit before the docuseries was finished. The concept was that we would create an immersive experience for fans and music historians that would be sort of a complement to [Peter] Jackson’s project. 

Our goal was to get as many of the musical instruments that they used in the recording sessions and on the rooftop, as possible, [as well as] documents and clothing, to help tell the story.

The goal is to place you there as best as possible from a museum standpoint. The original Let It Be film was shot in three separate locations. There’s Twickenham Studios, which was a big soundstage on the outskirts of London.

















There’s Apple Studios, which was in the basement of their headquarters at 3 Savile Row an

d then, of course, there’s the rooftop of that same building. We created three discreet theater spaces, so you can experience separate pieces of the footage, isolated. Each room has been outfitted with acoustic foam that you’d see in a recording studio, to prevent sound bleed from one space to the other. We were lucky enough to get John Lennon’s [1965] Epiphone Casino guitar that he’s playing [on the rooftop]. 
















We have Ringo [Starr]'s [1967] Hollywood Ludwig maple drum kit and George [Harrison]'s painted Strat. We also have manuscripts to songs that were literally written in those recording sessions. We have fantastic iconic clothing from all four Beatles. You know, you see the clothing they were wearing in 1969. It was just five years earlier that they were wearing the matching suits. It might as well have been 50 years later, so much had changed in the ‘60s.
