The museum is great but I wasn't impressed so much by the tour guide as a little OTT and pushed what seemed like their own angle on the contents rather than what was actual, However a trip to Kingston cant be had without this visit.

The museum was pretty cool, however I don't like that it's a guided tour as the entrance is pretty expensive and you don't really get enough time to look at everything because the guide pushes you through to the next room before you have a chance. They also sing during the tour which is cool until you get 3 quarters... More

Visited Bob Marley Museum late January 2017. We were met by a polite lady who ushered us to the office/reception area where we were given information on the tour. We had just missed the timed group tour so had to wait half an hour for the next. A very warm and excited lady greeted us and give us an idea... More

As a huge Bob and Reggae fan, this was a treat for us. Our tour guide, Iris, was so knowledgeable, energetic and passionate. She made our time there what it was. The rooms are full of interesting artifacts from his life. The highlight for us was the recording studio and the kitchen. Also a big piece of stained glass that... More

Visited the museum yesterday - on Bob Marley's birthday. What a festival! Lively music pumping from the stage. A lot of people enjoying the atmosphere but not too crowded. My group of friends and I circulated around the outdoor craft booths and stopped into the museum gift shop where I bought all of my travel gifts for family back in... More

You can't go to Kingston without a visit to Hope Road and see where the legendary Robert Nesta Marley lived .... yeah the tour is quite expensive, yeah it's a bit cringe in parts ... but it's so worth it. Interesting, great vibes and I could have just jumped in that hammock and stayed. Would have been nice to have... More

They were great! Stop by even if you're not going to the museum. The tour guide was great, young light skin guy with dreads..he was great. The juice bar was amazing. The workers were very nice. The smoothies were great! No sugar added, all raw ingredients.

Nice place to visit if you are a Bob Marley fan but be warned, the folks that work there see him as more than a good singer and more even than a national icon, the roots of his Rastafarian beliefs permeates the place and its laborers. Yet the history, music, background info and pictures are worth the trip. Irie!

I'm not a huge fan but visited here as part of a tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable but our group was large so sometimes we couldn't hear some of the information. The museum is well kept and organised and it was so nice to see Bob's home and many of his original possessions. Well worth a visit and learnt... More
