  • It was pretty cool. The guide was warm, welcoming and hilarious. You can't take any pictures inside but if you're a big fan, you'll really enjoy it. I wish there was more to the tour that you could interact with. For example, even a replica room (that's not copyrighted) with a statue of Bob you can stand next to and take pictures with would be cool. Maybe even having some sample ital food to allow you an example of how he ate. It would also be cool to have a small recording booth you could take a couple seconds and record yourself singing one of his hits. I know there's not a lot of space on the property but maybe they could figure out a way. I think it would make it much more memorable.
  • A truly fantastic experience to discover the life, work and lifestyle of the Great Bob Marley. Guided tours, merchandise for sale, along with reasonably priced food and drink to consume on the premises. A good selection of alcoholic beverages also available. Be prepared to spend a few hours as the tour of the museum lasts between 2-3 hours.
