Bob Marley Museum, Kingston Reviews
We had a fantastic tour here and the guide was not only extremely knowledgeable but also very excited about Bob Marley and the history in the house. This is a tour I would recommend for everyone that visits. Just be aware there are a number of stairs in the house if you have any kind of motion disability.
Great places if you're a pot head. Not so good if you believe in Family Values in a man should raise his family.. and be responsible for what children he brings to the world. Unfortunately one of the larger part of the tour is how they brag members of the band had a lot of children with a lot of different women....
Bob Marley's Birthday Celebration was good, great international interaction. However, there was one clear problem; some artist (Junior Reid) stayed on too long! Consequently other artists had short performances. All expected artists didn't perform. This was my furst visit to the Museum.
Very detailed a must for not only Bob Marley fans but ant interested in Jamaica's music and cultural heritage. I take all my friends and relatives who visit Jamaica there, no one is ever disappointed.
Very enjoyable experience! Loads of photos and interesting artifacts and history that I had not seen before (and I'm a huge Bob Marley fan!). The part that really made is was the staff - from the young man at the front entrance to the lovely folks at the cafe and ticket desk - and Shamara (sp? sorry!) was an AMAZING guide - great energy, fun and an excellent singer herself. What a great experience all around - highly recommend!
