There’s a lot more to Jamaica than it’s notable beaches. Where better to get acquainted with the island’s culture than at one of Jamaica’s many museums?
Jamaica is known for its rum production, so touring the Appleton Estate distillery is a fun way to get a taste of Jamaican history....and some delicious rum!
At the National Gallery of Jamaica, you can see the works of great Jamaican artists like Kapo, Edna Manley, Albert Huie, and Cecil Baugh. It’s considered the best collection of Jamaican art around and unique to Jamaica so it’s worth a visit.
If you’re interested in music, you can’t miss the Bob Marley Museum, inside the legendary Jamaican musician’s old house. Take a tour to see pictures and memorabilia, and to learn more about his fascinating life and accomplishments.
Finally, if you’re into ghost stories, visit the Great House on the Rose Hall Plantation, once home to the legendary White Witch, Annie Palmer. It’s said that she still haunts the house today. But...even if you don’t see any ghosts on your tour of Rose Hall, you’ll hear plenty of the old stories of the historic estate.
Jamaica offers some of the best beaches in the world but taking some time out from the sun and fun to explore the Jamaican history and culture is highly recommended!
