The museum is packed with memorabilia from Marley’s life including his guitar and stage outfits including his famous denim shirt.

Bob Marley Museum, Kingston Reviews
I'd recommend the tour.. we brought a local and they said they enjoyed the tour as well. Theres something for everyone to take away from this place. The history was awesome. Our tour guide was well informed and charismatic. It's a cool space to check out.
Great and informative tour, excellent tour guide. No photos or videos allowed inside the house, but it's best experienced in person anyway. A dream come true for myself and my family, it is a must-see for anybody who considers themself a Bob Marley/reggae fan! To get the full experience, I also recommend going to Nine Mile in St. Ann, Bob's final resting place.
Visited the museum on the 24 May 2018 and it was a moving and thought provoking tour. Kenny, our tour guide was engaging and captivating. He did an excellent job and his delivery was as if he was actually living in the era and was giving a first hand account. He made our visit to the museum memorable. I trust that he is there when we return. I encourage all to visit the museum as the organizers did an impeccable job covering the life of Bob Marley. From the moment you step on property to the first words uttered you are taken back in time to walk in the steps of Bob Marley. What an awesome experience.
This gem is an awesome spot to visit. There’s such beautiful history and culture to discover. Our tour guide was interactive and friendly. My only recommendation is that they put better signs or arrows showing “Entrance to Museum” so drivers not familiar with the area can spot it more easily.
A truly awesome place to learn about the icon himself. A lout of history and a lot of fun. Can't go wrong. One downfall--closes too early.
