  • Bob Marley was just one of many artists and celebrities who have lived here. Still, residents and visitors here to make music and produce CDs. We could experience a small taste. It was great.

  • A must-see for locals and foreigners alike to understand the circumstances and inspiration behind so many talents- Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Vincent Ford etc, and experience life in Kingston's mid1900s inner cities. Cheapest tour starts at $800JMD or US$12 and lasts about an hour
  • This is a very important cultural space for reggae music and Jamaica in general. It helps us to understand the life and times of Kingston that created the music we appreciate today. As Bob Marley lived at that address, it holds special significance as he is a leading figure in the music of that period. The VW bus that was featured in the Babylon by Bus tour is the highlight, but it could be argued that it needs to be preserved.
  • We just toured the building as we were on a bit of a budget and we didnt want to fork out for the whole trench town area tour. The tour wasnt very informative and was only about 15 mins in whole. The area is interesting to see when driving through (a whole other world from the rest of jamaica) and it's nice to see where bob lived in his teens. We listened to the reggee band who who were pretty cool but we didnt purcase their cd. (Who uses cds nowadays? -maybe the should look into getting on itunes or something) but we anyway gave a tip for their efforts. After that we were escorted off the premises and was refrained from taking more photos as the tour was now over.
  • The place is okay at times because there's not much people here now to vybez it up
  • The people in the vicinity tends to be hospitable
