    I was pleasantly surprised, love the decor and it was really informative. Great use of the interactive multimedia, and the short film was a nice addition.

    Very informative and uplifting, a people without knowledge of its past is like a tree without Roots. I love my T-shirt from gift shop.

    Having been to the Park of the National Heroes required a deeper look into history. It is quite small, but the museum has a collection of private things that belonged to Garvey. Interactive monitors let you form in depth, unfortunately I arrived a bit late so I did not have time for everything. The ticket found its place in my Bible without me looking, between 2 Samuel 16: 6 and 2 Samuel 17:28. A Black Prophet he is for sure! Thank you.

    Very important historical centre for Jamaica. This was the headquarters of the United Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) led by the Rt Honourable Marcus Garvey in the 1920s. The property was acquired by the Jamaican government and it is now a museum and cultural centre to further the philosophy of Marcus Garvey. It is a place to visit for educational groups and researchers. The hall features a modern museum dedicated to the work and times of Marcus Garvey.

    Lots to learn about the life and work of Marcus Garvey. In addition to that some history about our motherland, Africa. The time spent in the museum was too short wish I had more time to really emerse myself in the myriad of info available.

    Must see museum. Mix of hi-tech and traditional. Combination of tribute to Jamaica's first national hero as well as a space for reflection on selfhood and identity. A well-managed, thoughtfully laid out space.
