The Bob Marley museum is located in Kingston. The Royal Decameron is located about a 3 min. drive from the Montego Bay airport. Flying time from Montego Bay to Kingston, one way, is about 40 min. If you wish to go to Kingston by road the one way travel time is about 4 hr.

Drive time might even be longer as it is 4 hours from Negril to Kingston and another 1.5 hours into MoBay along the southern coastal road.

There is a commercial bus service from MoBay to Kingston called Knutsford Express ( http://www.knutsfordexpress.com/ ) that uses either the northern route or the southern route. There are a few stops at larger towns along the way. It is a scheduled service and the buses are air conditioned. Looks relatively comfortable.

You might want to consider Nine Mile instead if the museum. It's only about an hour and a half from Montego Bay.

Actually the roads from MoBay to Kingston are pretty great. You are on the newish 4 lane highway from MoBay to Ochi (or St Anns Bay), then a partially new, partially not-new but still-OK highway down to the south coast, then the incredibly fast new toll highway to Kingston. Then in the city, just city conditions. 4 hours is right, maybe a bit less now since the Mt Rosser bypass has opened.

...and the Knutsford is very comfortable, always on time and the least expensive way to get there in 4 hours. It happens to leave you in New Kingston quite close to the Marley museum, a short taxi ride or even walk, away. You'd catch it in MoBay, not far from the airport.

By day this is a completely safe area to explore, there are many good restaurants and a handful of hotels (should you wish to spend the night) . Devon House is just about on the way to the museum, check that out and grab some ice cream :) http://www.devonhousejamaica.com/
