I really enjoyed checking out their selection of items. However, you can find most of the same things at local markets/street vendors for a much better price.

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.

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!

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.

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.
