610847dc74ddbf357897eb6b8664919dWith the weather in New York City starting to get a little colder, it might be a good time to travel to Miami for some fun in the sun and visit Miami. Another reason to visit the new Bob Marley exhibit. On Thursday, October 10, the Bob Marley Messenger show at HistoryMiami opened to a packed house. Even more special was that several members of Bob Marley’s family were on hand including his daughter Karen and his youngest, Ky-Mani. Ky-Mani performed “Is This Love” and “Three Little Birds”, his father would have been proud. The exhibition is opennow thru January 5, 2014. General admission for adults is $8, seniors and students with ID are $7, children ages six – 12 are $5 and children under six free. The exhibition is Curated by the GRAMMY Museum™ at L.A. LIVE, endorsed by the Marley family. Miami is the last stop of the traveling exhibition before ittravels to the birthplace of Bob Marley, Nine Mile in Jamaica.

Bob Marley Messenger explores Marley as a private, spiritual man, as a powerful performer whose lyrics gave voice to the disenfranchised and as a legend who continues to inspire legions of fans since his death more than 30 years ago. The exhibition brings together diverse artifacts, rare photographs and more from the private collection of the Marley family. On display, visitors will see a broad array of items, including: Marley’s famous Les Paul guitar; photographs of Marley both on and off stage; ticket stubs, concert posters, tour books and fan memorabilia and interactive items such as a drumming station that allows visitors to learn how to play reggae beat.

“What an honor to host this exhibition. Bob Marley once said, ‘In this bright future, you can’t forget the past.’ When we open the doors to this exhibition on Thursday, October 10, I think Robert Nesta Marley would be happy to see his legacy and message still alive and thriving in Miami,” said Stuart Chase, museum director.
