Bob Marley Museum - Review

Perhaps the most visited of tourist sites in Kingston Jamaica, the Bob Marley Museum is a true ode to the legend. Visitors are taken on a guided tour of the legend’s former home and the location of his Tuff Gong recording studio. The museum is packed with memorabilia from Marley’s life including his guitar and stage outfits including his famous denim shirt. There are several photographs in the various rooms in the museum and an informative guide will share the history and anecdotes of the singer’s life as you move through the rooms. Visitors are also shown a 20-minute short film on life of Bob Marley highlighting his music and its impact on the world.

Another interesting feature is that the bullet holes from the attempt made on his life are still visible and are left as is for visitors to see. There is a huge colourful statue of Bob Marley in the forecourt of the house and the exterior walls are adorned with Rastafarian themed murals.

With an impressive display of his gold and platinum records, media clippings and the Order of Merit presented to him by the Jamaican Government, the Museum is a true shrine in order of the man who gave the world reggae.  In 2001, The Bob Marley Museum became a National Protected Heritage Site.

  • A must visit for anyone that visits the beautiful island of Jamaica. There is so much history and information in the honorable Robert Marley's house. The guides are very well informed and love to get the group involved with songs. ONE LOVE

  • I love the displays both outside and inside the house. The tour guide gave interesting facts about bob marley, his family and his home. Wish I could take pictures of the inside but its restricted. Also, wish I could have walked around by myself without the tour guide. It was awesome to sing some of Bob's songs while during the experience. I would definitely go back and take a few friends with me.

  • Culture and Jamaican History at its best. If you visit Jamaica and want to understand its journey in music then this is a must one stop! Step back in time and travel through life with Bob Marley from his humble begins to to glory days on to his legacy still being lived through his talented children. See all of his awards , home and most precious meet people from all stages of his life who are still living and can get the 411 straight from the horses mouth!. I promise you you'll be inspired and blown away. If you do nothing else in Jamaica, do this. I live her now and do it at least twice a year with my visitors and love it every time.

  • Awesome learning experience! Our tour guide (Oshane) was pleasant, informative, lively, interacted with the group and kept us interested. I would definitely visit again and do recommend.

  • The museum is a lovely place and history However my experience as a transportation provider. My view of how we and other operators are not treated well which is a shame. Please look into this. Thank you
