More than expected

The tour inside Bob Marley’s home last about 45 minutes that also included information about his recording studio and where he was shot inside the home. It was extremely informative and the only drawback to being the museum if you didn’t get a sense of Day-to-day life inside the home but more of a representation of what his life was like in general. We used Rasta Taxi For transportation from Montego Bay which was about 2 1/2 hours each way and they were extremely accommodating and made extra stops for us so we could see other points of interest. Rasta Taxi also insured that are booking was correct as it was originally miss booked through Expedia as Expedia tried to book the tour on a day the museum was closed. Rasta ensured correct booking to accommodate us.

The place of music history. If you love Bob music this place is for you! The place can show you the life he lived. Can find a lot of his used materials. Place was maintained well. There was a theatre to show a short movie about him. A shop to buy memorable gifts. Should try.

No reggae vibe here

Came by car, the staff watched us park up and get out, only to then be told to park the car around the other way. We did that, got back out and a man pointed and told us to get tickets. On the way to the ticket booth you pass a statue of Bob, so we took some photos. He came over and repeated for us to get tickets and so started heading over to the booth again, stopping this time by an information sign to read about Rita. He again came over, stared at us while we finished reading the sign. The last straw for him was then when someone then took a photo of the house from the sign some of us were reading. He told us to take no photos until we’d purchased a ticket, and implied we should delete the one we’d already taken if we weren’t buying a ticket. The only way to see the house is on a tour so it wasn’t like you can accidentally walk in without paying (you aren’t allowed to enter the property without being on a 90 minute tour with a dedicated guide). After the distasteful experience decided to not fund such a badly run and unwelcoming place for tourists.

The first half of the tour to trench town was a waste of time, the guide giving tour had been smoking some local stuff and out of his trolley, there was a live band there and could not hear anything the guide was trying to say. We had to have a police escort in and out off trench town, very scary, the second part of trip to hotel for lunch was great and the Bob Marley house museum well worth a visit , but would definitely not recommend the Trench town part of the tour, waste of time and money

Really interesting

Didn’t really know much about Bob Marley but found this really interesting. You could touch almost everything in his house as well. Guides are really good and know everything there is to know and had a sing song around the tour. Well worth the money

Must do when in Kingston

Fully went in with no expectations and was blown away. Ricky was our guide for the 1hr 30 minute tour.

From the moment the tour started his jovial demeanour and pride shone through.

The interactive tour is full of info, sights and sounds. So glad I did this tour and it’s a must do if you are visiting Kingston!

A new perspective of Bob Marley
Feb 2020
The museum sheds a different light on what I thought or had heard of Bob Msrley. I had associated his life to music and drug use. I never new the role he played in enlightenment and peace. The pictures and newspaper articles were great information for someone coming from the US and not of his era.

Bob Marley our reggae music and even more so, Jamaica, on the world stage. Almost forty years since his passing, his music still speaks to peace, love, equality and more. The museum, his former home, provides a glimpse into the simple life he led and the impact his music and life had on the world!
