“A 'must see' for all Bob fans.”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

If you love Bob Marley, you must visit this Museum in Kingston. Hidden behind a high wall is Bob's simple home by todays's standards. A knowledgeable guide will take you on a one hour tour of Bob's home: many walls are covered with memorabilia, newspaper stories and photos spanning his career and showing Bob, Rita and the kids in more informal family portraits. The tour concludes with a short documentary of his life in an air-conditioned theatre on site. There is a gift shop selling all things Bob: from T-Shirts to CDs, flip flops to posters, lighters to incense sticks. Pictures are not allowed inside the museum but there are opportunities to take a photo sitting on Bob's front step where legend has it that he often sat, having a 'smoke' and watching the world go by! Entrance fee is around $20US and for Marley fans it is well worth the price.

“Not more than just a house”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Unless you are a big fan of Marley, not sure it is worth spending 1 hour there (this is the duration of the tour) and 20$. It is his house with a few memorabilia (golden albums, newspapers, etc.).

“Proud to be a Jamaican”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The guides were knowledgeable, there was respect and order. I could smell marijuana and was a little uncomfortable in telling my children that Bob smoked a lot, but that it would be in their best interest if they did not smoke.

“A must for Marley lovers”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

He was a peaceful and incredible man that gave us music with warm rhythms and words that touched your soul. His home is a great tribute to all he accomplished in his short life.
