Bob Marley Museum
Jamaica's world-famous son, singer-songwriter Bob Marley, was
responsible for making reggae music a global phenomenon. The
popular Rastafarian became a cult figure even before his death in
1981, caused by cancer when he was only 36 years old. The museum
devoted to his memory is the most-visited sight in Kingston. The
simple clapboard house was where Marley lived and recorded his
music until he died, and is now packed with Marley memorabilia.
There are also screenings of a movie about the singer's life.
