Upon arrival in the hills of St. Ann, the birth and resting place of the king of reggae, Bob Marley, you will travel the world of Jamaican musical history. We encourage one and all to embrace this project by donating and taking stock to show your own special memorabilia on premises with opportunity to retain permanence therein.
Encouragement is given to reggae historians to embrace this opportunity to tell your story where it all began in the hills of St. Ann. If we receive enough donations, we will be able to display the historical accounts of the evolution of reggae music digitally and with unique community involvement.
We invite and encourage local schools to preserve the beauty and legacy of our Jamaican culture through plays and reenactments of performances like Miss Lou’s and old traditional folktales which will live into perpetuity at our cultural mecca.
The Jamaica International Reggae Museum is committed to telling the story about local and international events that shaped the evolution of reggae music in Jamaica and eventually around the world today.
The international reggae community is invited to join us as we rejoice and revel in all our favorite music.
Also, through your donations, we hope to restore Canaan, the Great House to serve as a reminder of what life was like in the early 1900’s. Here visitors will see the resting place of a slave’s descendant who was born on Jamaica’s Emancipation Day. You will see a functioning outdoor kitchen from the era and an outhouse like you’ve never seen before. Sample a sustainable 'Earthship' structure and help to foster other unique projects for living off the grid.
Donations via PayPal will go towards construction projects, helping children, the elderly and the handicapped. Learn more about donating today.
