In terms of a physical space, the Jamaica Music Museum (JaMM) is the most recent addition in the cultural landscape of the nation and currently do not have full museum facilities. It is envisioned that the Museum will offer guided and / personal tour(s) using audiovisual accessory which would accompany visitors through our displays, showcasing some of our finest pieces from the collection.
Our exhibitions will be contextualized to highlight the social, historic and musical value they embody: among them, instruments of famous musicians, manuscripts, personal objects and items, audio and video recordings and music representing the ritual, folk and popular genres.
While still in its developmental stage, the JaMM is aware the we must be accessible to everyone. Children and parents will be provided with everything they may need to enhance their visits. For visitors challenged by mobility, buggies, wheel chairs, baby carriers and folding chairs will be on hand. At the JaMM, induction loop systems for audio guides and audiovisual materials will be available. Discussions with leading communication providers are currently in progress for funding of maps and relief captions as well as tactile and aural-tours that will allow the visually impaired to visit the museum independently.
The Jamaica Music Museum (JaMM) showcases an array of archival materials; from rare musical recordings and oral histories of Jamaican music greats and the lesser known figures to musical scores, photographs, films, research files, business records, personal correspondence and musical instruments that belonged to eminent Jamaican musicians.
