Top 7 Museums in Kingston, Kingston Parish

August 23, 2021 Elouise Mccaul

Far from the north coast resort towns, Kingston is Jamaica at its most authentic, a sprawling city of contrasts spread between the east coast and the Blue Mountains. Kingston's diversity is reflected in its disparate neighborhoods, from the wealthy northern suburbs to the less affluent downtown. Travelers can discover the spirit of One Love at the Bob Marley Museum, or sample delicious ice cream at Devon House. Nearby, the former capital of Spanish Town offers insight into the area's history.

I had a lovely interesting time visiting the gallery accompanied by a very knowledgable local lady who was familiar with several of the artists and their work. As a tourist it was my first visit and i was also impressed by the settings and displays of so many lovely works of art.

I visited the Bob Marley Museum today anybody who visits Jamaica must see this museum It was Bob’s house in Kingston, his recording studio, where he played football, where he rehearsed, and where he hung out. It’s also where unidentified gunmen tried to assassinate him - you can still see the bullet holes. Our Tour guide was great very informative and friendly.

A very fitting tribute to a Jamaican who had so much yet to give. The Museum provided a deeper insight into the man and his music. Peter Tosh was a deep thinker and a freedom fighter who stood up for the oppressed African people around the world. He communicated his thoughts through his music and was well ahead of his time. Well worth visiting.
