Beatlemania refuses to die down. Even after such a long time the fans have the same passion and obsession. Another of the hard core fans in Argentina has recently opened a Beatles Museum in Buenos Aires. The new museum claims to have the largest collection of Beatles memorabilia. Rodrigo Vazquez is a passionate Beatles memorabilia collector. Vazquez, who works as an accountant has a treasure trove of more than 8,500 objects with some connection to the Beatles.
The collection includes some unusual items like a brick from The Cavern Club, a check for 11 pounds signed by Ringo Starr. There are very many records, gadgets, puppets and games, basically everything from mop top wigs to John Lennon condoms. Vazquez, who first fell in love with the Beatles as a child, now wants to display his large collection so that the fans can enjoy watching it.
The new Beatles Museum that opened on Avenue Corrientes has about 2,200 articles on display. Vasquez plans to rotate the objects in the museum so that the public can see them rather than having them tucked away in boxes. The museum in Argentina has added to the number of Beatles Museums around the world and it might not be the last one we see.
