Museum of Belize

The Museum of Belize is an art and history museum, built between the years 1854 and 1857 while Belize was still under Britain's rule. It initially served as a prison and then, in 2002, it was transformed into a museum. Divided into three distinct sections — History, Exhibits, and Activities — the museum is home to several exhibits that delve into the past of the city, the people that inhabited the British Colony of British Honduras, and the pivotal events that have shaped modern-day Belize.
