  • Culture Yard was a great experience! I recommend that if you go ask for Stone Man to be your tour guide. He is rich in knowledge and love for the community. You will learn a lot and if you tour the co...  more »
  • The Culture Yard is a community cultural project that recalls the origins of the reggae in Kingston, at the same time which reproduces current rastafari culture. In addition, along with the District of Trenchtown, and my most important, is a space that allows you to discover the reality of a neighborhood of Downtown Kingston. For my was very important to the project as the money to improve the situation of people living in surrounding areas, for purposes like buying books for school or other materials. At the same time, provided a space for children where growing up with music, culture and learning. Many things about which think... much strength to all the neighbouring Trenchtown and to all the people who made this project possible.

  • seriously? $2000 ja for a 15-minute visit. 4 photos on the walls ... Two junk and a carcass that was supposed to be the car to Bob Marley. Dirty ghetto is overgrown. Only for fans of the genre and for die-hard fans of the reggae culture

  • This place is a must visit for true reggae fans. This is where Bob Marley and many other reggae artists started out. Remember to bring cash with you because cards are not accepted. We did a tour of the yard with the lady who manages the place then toured the neighborhood with Blackie. It was humbling and sobering to see the living conditions of the residents of Trenchtown but very a insightful and informative tour. It was a wonderful opportunity to interact with the people of Jamaica and learn from them. After the tours we heard a few songs from a member of the band Livin Kulcha. We would have bought the CD but didn't bring enough cash. It was great to see where Bob and others came from and to learn about all the music history in this tiny town. Thanks for sharing with us
  • For an authentic experience of Kingston's music culture, this is the place to visit. Authentic works of art, pottery, music and the friendliness of the Trench Town Community is unmatched. No Visit to Trench Town is complete without a visit with Roots and Herbs teacher Oswald 'Stoneman ' Comrie
  • That's where Bob Marley's rise to stardom started
  • Great place to visit
  • Rich with culture and well maintained
