“Not a bad history of an interesting people”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

$10 entry to this small museum felt quite reasonable especially when you consider it is going to a good cause.

The Garifuna people have quite the history, and an intriguingly complicated language, (at least to me)!

The museum itself is fairly small and contains some photographs and mostly writing. Indeed I had found a lot of the information in the museum before hand wither through my guide book, or some basic research on the history of Belize on the internet. Therefore nothing blew me away, but again it's for a good cause. Great if you don't have the background knowledge going in.

“Essential for a visit to the Garifuna country”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

Although small and simple, it was an essential stop for us for an overview on the Garinagu people. It contains historical maps and photos, with a detailed timeline chart, and traditional utensils used in the villages. Some people told us we can walk, but it was a bit out of town and we didn't regret the Bz$5 taxi ride.

The museum is small, but the caretaker has a wealth of knowledge that he is more than happy to share!

“Great History Lesson”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

It was great learning about the history of the Garifuna in Belize!
Some of the information was hard to read due wear and tear over time.
