If he'd been at the opening of HistoryMiami's exhibit about his life, Bob Marley would have lit a spliff and said, "Yah, real nice, irie vibes, mon. Jah. Rastafari."

The opening of the exhibit dedicated to the world's greatest reggae superhero was a smashing success.

Hundreds gathered in HistoryMiami's courtyard and ambled through its halls to enjoy live music, catered food, drinks, and one of a kind photographs and artifacts. Here's what it looked like.
