  • They don't let you take any pictures inside the house which I don't understand as it is nothing very special. The only part left "untouched" is his bedroom and a small kitchen. All the other rooms are empty with posters hanging on the wall. The tour is too long, I'd much rather have an audioguide and tour the house at you own pace. Everything is made to make you spend more money. I'd recommend it only to true fans.
  • We had such a great time visiting Bob Marley's house in Kingston. The murals around the house are beautiful. Be sure to take plenty of pictures there because you can't take any inside. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour took about an hour and 20 minutes. The amount of history inside is incredible...his Grammy....albums...clothing...studio...everything is there. We got hustled into buying an overpriced CD from Bongo. Lol. The only downside was that after suggesting that everyone tip him at the end of the tour as we were signing the guest book the guide came over and said, "What? No tip?" He got a smaller one than he would have because of that. Let people tip, don't demand it.
  • I went to the Bob Marley Museum for the 1st time in my entire life of living in Jamaica, and it was a nice experience. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing his information, and it was an amazing experience to be in the house of one of the greatest musicians of all time. I would recommend it especially to die hard Bob Marley fans. I hope they continue to enrich the tour with more interactive elements, but there were some facts I didn't know that were cool to hear about. If in Kingston, it's definitely a stop you need to make.
  • Had the best experience. Saw records, awards, his Grammy, and the list goes on and on. Ricky Chapman was our tour guide and he killed. Entertaining and factual. The property is large and the tour takes quite awhile. The gift shop is amazing.
  • Visit the home Bob Marley recorded at. Check out where he was shot, where he made meals, the steps he gave money away on. Learn about his life. The tour guides are fun and offer tons of info. $25 USD for adult entry. + a tip for you guide if you wish. Its just a nice thing to do. And that whole Kingston isn't safe thing is far from the truth. Go during the day and keep your head up like you would in any major city. We were welcomed with open arms by plenty of friendly local people.
