Though Trench Town (the innercity community Bob Marley was originally from) is often called the birthplace of Reggae, 56 Hope Road is clearly where Reggae went to live. Bob purchased the property, now The Bob Marley Museum, in 1975 and made it his home until his death in 1981. If you are a Bob Marley fan itâ€™s obvious that the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston is one of the best places to visit in Jamaica while on vacation.
Explore the former home and studio of the legendary Bob Marley, where youâ€™ll get to see beautifully hand painted murals and a statue of Bob, a myriad of his personal treasures such as his platinum and gold records and awards as well as a stunning photo gallery. But what visitors consider the best part of the one hour museum tour is the visit to Bob Marleyâ€™s old room, which was left untouched since the day he left it.
Once youâ€™re done reliving the life of Bob Marley, youâ€™ll want to purchase some CDs or other Bob memorabilia to take back home with you. They will make for the perfect Jamaican souvenir.
