We had an afternoon to spend in Belize City so we decided to go look for some souvenirs. After purchasing the souvenirs that we wanted, we were really hot and decided to go to the museum since it was nearby. It seemed like a safe neighborhood for walking. We didn't have any problems. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice, cool, and refreshing the museum was. The air conditioning was wonderful! It was worth the $5 entrance fee just for the AC. The museum is in the old jail. The inside of the building is really neat. I loved the old stamp collection and the insect exhibit. Other exhibits included mayan history, history about the jail, logging and transportation history. There was a small gift shop. The bathrooms were clean. A good visit for an hour or 2...maybe longer if you want to stay in the air conditioned building! It's worth a stop if you have a few hours to spare in Belize City.
