Jamaica Music Museum (JaMM)
 
 
  General Information:

The Jamaica Music Museum (JaMM) was initially launched in 2000 and again in 2009. It is the newest addition to the Institute of Jamaica.

When completed, the JaMM is expected to house a vast collection of Jamaican records, a library and database of Jamaican music and provide visitors with a modern and interactive musical experience.

 
  Objective:

The JaMM is geared toward documenting, preserving and displaying artefacts relating to Jamaica’s very eventful musical history. It focuses on the gradual development of popular Jamaican music- from European classical to the development of indigenous genres such as Mento, Ska, Rock Steady, Reggae and Danchall.
