Build museum to honour music, sports heroes

THE EDITOR, Sir:

It is full time Jamaica establish a world-class, state-of-the-art music and sports museum to recognise and celebrate our amazing achievements in these two areas.

I have travelled and read, and I do not know of any other country of similar size and population as Jamaica that has had as many incredible achievements in music and sports.

If we are serious about inspiring our people, encouraging all Jamaicans to continue to strive for excellence, preserving our legacies and celebrating the outstanding achievements of our iconic musicians, sportsmen and sportswomen, we should have a central place, a museum, where Jamaicans and people from all over the world can visit and embrace our accomplishments.

Come on, Culture Minister 'Babsy' Grange. This should have been established long ago.
