If you have been brought up with Queen as the soundtrack to your life, you will love this museum.

It's simple and unadorned but there are some gems in here, especially the handwritten lyrics and yellow jacket.

Great if youre a Freddie fan. Much smaller than expected and much more expensive. Some nice memorabilia. A must for Queen fans.

While we were walking in Stone Town we visited this place. The birthplace of a legend is very popular among tourists. If you like him, it’s a must see site. The house has a nice traditional wooden gate. Everybody wants to take photos in front of the house with the famous star. We did it, too.

Great place to visit when in Zanzibar.
Everyone on the planet knows who Freddie mercury was. Not everyone realizes he was born in Zanzibar. This is not the actual house he lived in, but being in Stone Town it is really easy to get to from anywhere.
It is a bit of a lark, and not much new can be learned from the visit...but who doesn't like Queen music blasting out for an hour of wandering

An interesting trip down memory lane with framed photos of Freddie's childhood in Zanzibar and India followed by original lyrics from some of the band's songs. There is also a broken grand piano that Brian May so kindly donated together with one of Freddie's stage costumes. The staff are on hand to explain stuff to you. However, if you want to see the apartment where his family lived, that is upstairs in the Tembu House Hotel extension.

Ok-ish... you pay 10$ to see pictures that you can see on the internet, overall the 10$ ticket is overpriced for what's inside , the correct price for what this is would be 2-3 dollars

Way overpriced, poor quality of exhibits and very brief. The only interesting part we’re photos of early Zanzibar (before Freddie was born). Go to the museum on slavery in stone town - a much more interesting experience.

Very small ( 2 room) museum with nothing (except sone hand written lyrics and one outfit) not readily available on the internet - mostly photos & album covers
But
It is in the house where he lived, so as a Freddie fan, I was pleased to have visited.
10$ entrance fee is high for what it us

A very nostalgic trip back in time. A time we lived through but didn't then see the significance of Freddie's input to the the world of music.

The museum is small and focuses mainly on his life story before Queen. It goes on to display his and Queen's achievements.

The critics clearly missed the point, didn't do their research, or maybe weren't even Fans.

I found the museum informative, but above all, I was very moved to be reminded what a great talent has been lost to the world.

Like many 1980s teenagers, I loved Queen and specifically Freddie Mercury. The Museum, dedicated to this talented musician, was absolutely worth a visit. It brought back so many awesome memories. Seeing some of Freddie's outfits, handwritten lyrics and photos, and hearing the music, really touched me. I left a little teary-eyed to be honest. One of the highlights of my trip to Zanzibar.
