Set in Belize City, the Government House, also known as the House of Culture, served as the seat of government for over 150 years as well as the private residence for numerous notable names. With so much history housed in one spot, it only makes sense that it would now serve as a social and cultural center.


While there are no actual exhibits housed at the Government House, it is used for cultural events, and available to be rented out for private functions.
