Attraction details
Owner description: Art Box is an arts and crafts center located in the hidden jewel of the Caribbean, Belize. This lush tropical country located in Central America has provided the inspiration for the Caribbean art and Belize art that we take pride in offering to the country and its visitors. Here at Art Box we have been designing and producing, beautiful, and elegant, high quality products inspired by the rich Belize culture and Caribbean culture since November of 1996 when we first opened our doors. We place the utmost importance on sharing authentic Belizean and Caribbean art with our customers, and in turn introducing the world to the culture of our magnificent country, Belize and the Caribbean. The authenticity of our products is evident in the fact that a large percentage of our merchandise is made by local Belizean artists and craftsmen. This allows us to provide a revenue and support for our local artists and in turn share their work and Belize culture with you. Through Art Box we have been able to come closer to our goal of bringing more affordable and functional luxuries into everyone's lives. We insist on product quality, customer service, product evaluation and improvement. We at Art Box have one true focus as a company and that is to allow everyone access to the products of Belize so that no matter where you are in the world we can bring the best that the Belize culture (and Caribbean culture) has to offer to your doorstep.

“Nice shop for everyone, and they really have everything”

If you get a chance to check out the Art Box, then do it. It's on the George Price Highway, just outside of Belmopan, and it's hard to miss. It's 2 floors of art, and it's set up really nicely. The 2nd floor has tons of paintings, and pieces of furniture too. The bottom floor has everything else, from wooden bowls to key chains to books. Great spot.

“Stylish art and furniture store”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Excellent place to stop on the way to/from the airport. I love the items in this store, very stylish and well made. Beware there are some touristy nick nacks that you will see in many other shops (sometimes with a more expensive price tag), but you will find treasures amongst them. I will definitely be back!

“You best Belize”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

If you are looking for artifacts, crafts, memorabilia, or souvenirs of Belize….this is a must stop store. On a recent visit to Belmopan, we stopped to gather some items. What should have been a 10-15 minute stop turned into an hour. They have many items that will be of interest to just about anyone. Hand craved/crafted items, clothing, art, jewelry, books, music, magnets, hot sauce, religious items and more. They accept credit cards, and will ship to wherever you want if it is too big to take on your return trip home. They have an online site (www.artboxbz.com) to order items as well.

“Fine Craftsmanship Awaits You”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

The products here are made by local artists from both the Carribean and Belize. This arts and handicraft center has a wide variety of items....from wooden souvenirs to local jewelry, wall hangings, organic coffee, books and music, etc.. The artists pride themselves on the their craftsmanship using high-quality local materials. This is a definitely a one-stop art center that shouldn't be missed.
