Once a prison, in 2002, this expansive property was converted into a museum of cultural importance, the Museum of Belize. More than a cultural museum, however, this spot serves as a center for local children to learn and grow, as it also shares the country's history with visitors.


Collections at the Museum of Belize include a stamp of Queen Victoria circa 1837, historic artifacts, and Maya pottery. Additionally, visitors have the opportunity to step inside a well-preserved jail cell.
