The Homer Street "shrine" is really more of a tourist-attraction memorabilia collection museum (kind of like all the Elvis shrine/museums around the world. I don't think it had any direct connection to Jimi Hendrix the musician. The 207 Union Street "shrine" actually has a living...More

We walked about 15 minutes to see the Jimi Hendricks/Bib Marley Shrine. We got there...didn’t see anything!! A waste of time.

Some old pictures, a few shells of guitars, a couple of old letters, a couple different record sleeves and covers. I am a huge fan so it was ok to see, no big deal.

This shrine /building used to be part of Vie’s Chicken & Steak House, where Jimi Hendrix's granny, Nora Hendrix, worked as a cook for many years. It is now on the edge of Chinatown but at the time was the Afro Canadian area. Seemingly Jimi...More

A small shrine to an amazing artist. Also a spot for Bob Marley fans. As other reviews may point out, this place is free to enter and run by folks who love the music and history. Ask a few questions and you can learn a...More

What a neat retro spot to visit in Vancouver...funky memorabilia and pictures and quotes. Entrance by donation or free so it is affordable for everyone. Great that the owner is paying tribute to such a talented, creative genius.

I lived in Vancouver for many years before I discovered this on a walking tour of the DTES - which I highly recommend. Our city has so much more history than most people realise with many other gems like this one.

Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
