Bob Marley Museum

6, 56 Hope Road, Kingston, Jamaica

The Basics

This home turned museum provides a fascinating glimpse into the life of Bob Marley, with rooms much as the singer left them (including bullet holes in the wall from a failed 1976 assassination attempt). The museum’s on-site One Love Café features many of Marley’s favorite dishes, while souvenirs and albums are available at the gift shop. All visits include hour-long tours and screenings of a 20-minute informational film. Visitor slots are limited, so it’s wise to book your visit in advance to avoid having to wait.

Bob Marley Museum Full-Day Tour from Montego bay
This was by far our favourite day in jamaica we desperately wanted to leave the resort and see the real jamaica and we did that. Stephen was great he took us around kingston and trench town dropping facts all the way. We requested to eat and usain bolt’s restaurant and we ate there which was delish. We tried so many jamaican foods aswell which was great. The day was long but unforgettable this is defo a must if you want to actually visit jamaica properly.

Couldn't recommend this tour more! Steven is so knowledgeable about his country and is constantly pointing things out, telling stories and answering any questions. He really made the long journey to Kingston and back feel like no time. He gives you a taster day of the real Jamaica! The bob Marley museum was very good too and a trip to Devon house for their amazing ice scream! 10/10 trip

Bob Marley Museum Full-Day Tour from Montego bay
Highly recommend this tour! I was adamant about getting to the Marley house due to my deep interest in music, but I learned a lot about Jamaican culture. We even stopped to try some local fruits and foods - from chicken patties to coconut jelly. Our guide Steven was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and informative. I recommend this tour! (He has other tours/services as well - you'll be in good hands.)

Reggae Music

Reggae music continues to thrive in Jamaica and around the world, particularly in places with large Jamaican populations, notably the UK. Numerous subgenres fall under the general reggae heading. Roots reggae is slower and generally features Rastafarianism-related lyrics, while dancehall is a faster-paced, more modern style characterized by pre-produced background tracks or “riddims” that are used by multiple artists and often released on compilation albums.
