KINGSTON, Jamaica -- President Obama, who arrived here Wednesday evening for a meeting with Caribbean leaders, made an unscheduled nighttime visit to the Bob Marley Museum.

"I still have all the albums," Obama, in rolled up shirtsleeves, told museum guide Natasha Clark, as he toured the home in central Kingston where the Jamaican reggae great lived from 1975 until his death in 1981.

Marley's family has turned the rambling, Victorian style house and outbuildings into a museum where all things Marley are sold --T-shirts, posters, albums -- and artifacts from his life and Jamaican culture are displayed.
