Bob Marley Museum, Port Royal and Kingston Highlights

Kingston is the cultural district of the island. From the original colonial architecture to the not-to-be-missed Hope Gardens; this is a city ablaze with a unique action, beauty and the spirit of All Right. Visit the most interesting places in one day,

Port Royal

Located at the mouth of Kingston’s harbor, Port Royal was founded in 1518 and acted as a shipping center for the Caribbean region. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1692. It was once known as the richest and wickedest city in the world and was home to generations of pirates who plundered silks and gold from Spanish ships. Edward Teach, the pirate known as “Blackbeard,” once lived in Port Royal. The old pirate haunts have now been transformed into museums, and the area is served by cruise ships. Major archaeological findings are also on display here, and Fort Charles represents another tourist attraction.

Bob Marley Museum

The museum is located on the site of Bob Marley’s home, in which the legendary reggae musician lived from 1975 until his death in 1981, and it was also the location of the Tuff Gong recording studio. The home was converted to a museum in 1987 to display Marley’s personal items, including his guitar. On a guided tour, visitors can see a medicinal herb garden, press clippings about Marley, his stage costumes, photo gallery, and bullet holes in the walls from a failed assassination attempt on Marley.
