The museum is housed in the former prison and good use is made of the stone building to showcase glimpses of past lifestyles in Belize and her surrounding countries. Even the building itself has an interesting history, with the stone being shipped over by Great Britain many years ago.
We felt our visit to the museum provided a good text and background to the country that we had just arrived to spend time exploring, and there were plenty of things to learn that indeed could not be gleaned from the usual guidebooks, not to mention viewing the artefacts on display.
For an entrance fee of USD 5.00, the museum is excellent value.
I feel obliged to add that to visit the museum in order to pass the time if the weather is inclement or to take advantage of the air conditioning, is to do it a great injustice!
