The museum has a small but interesting collection of history and artifacts. Jamaica has a unique history, and this is one of the few places on the north shore to see it on display. The art gallery is also small, but the rotating exhibits are of high quality. If you are travelling to the centre in an automobile, be aware that parking in central Montego Bay is very hard to find. If you travel to the centre in a tourist van, the van is allowed to park in front of the building.

The tour guides were very knowledgeable and informative. They told about Jamaica’s history as far back as 700A.D. The role Marcus Garvey played in Jamaica in the early 1900’s as well as The Revelation of Ras Tafari. Also, the different nationalities that controlled the leadership of the country throughout its existence. It was a lot of information to absorb and most of it I didn’t know. I will not post many pictures because it’s a “must do” when in Jamaica. Excellent experience!!!

There are two exhibitions, one on Jamaican history generally, and the other on Rastafarianism. Neither are very rich in artefacts, but they do present history in digestible form, with excellent use of graphics and historic material. We learned a lot in our 1 hour visit. Staff very very helpful and knowledgeable.
