Julian Marley, son of music icon Bob Marley, has collected a Family Traveller Award of Excellence on behalf of the Bob Marley Museum in Jamaica. Julian Marley picked up the award on February 26, 2020 at the One Love football match, an annual charity event held in honor of his internationally famous father.
The 2019 Family Traveller Excellence Awards took place at the Natural History Museum in London to celebrate travel organizations across the world that offer families truly exceptional vacation experiences. The Bob Marley Museum in Jamaica was awarded an Excellence Award in the category of Immersive Experiences, an award recognizing organizations that go beyond tourism and give families the chance to fully immerse themselves in a destination. Visit Jamaica was also recognized in the awards for making visiting the country with teens a joy.
Jamaica’s Bob Marley Museum is situated on the site of the legendary musician’s home. Marley bought the property in 1975 and lived there until his death in 1981. The house was converted into a museum six years later by his wife, Rita Marley.
A tour of the property offers families a peek into every aspect of Marley’s life, including the chance to see many of his personal treasures. The museum also houses an 80-seat theater, a photo gallery, record shop and the One Love Cafe.
The Bob Marley Museum is a hit with families and a well-deserved winner of a Family Traveller Excellence Award.
