Bob Marley Museum, Kingston Reviews - Write a Review
Can't say enough about this place. It is kept authentic, just like when Bob lived there. It is an amazing experience to do the tour with the wonderful guides. It is well organized and maintained and I love the natural juices that Viva makes....delicious! So much to learn about the icon Bob Marley here. Great place and great people! A must do....
Was a good tour... Guide seemed like a bit of a rookie and nervous. There could have been some live music incorporated into the tour itself in a creative way. The Legend spoke for himself though with the life he lived.
I'll admit I'm not a fan of Bob Marley, but it was part of my day tour itinerary. Holy cow, the entrance fee for this tiny little "museum" is about twice as much as the Louvre. You'll get an overly energetic guide to take your around to different rooms to look at photographs. There's nothing special about the inside, and the stories they tell can be read on wikipedia. Way over-rated.
My mother was attacked and robbed outside the museum by a man on a motorcycle. She was holding my daughter's hand. I could have lost my family. This needs to stop. If you see a man pull up on a side walk on a motorcycle please be aware he pretends he's waiting for traffic..I hope I can help to protect another family.
If you want to learn first hand about the life of reggae legend Bob Marley this is the place to go. World class guides and tour package. Very interactive!
