A popular tourist attraction of the Fort George area, the Museum of Belize is where the erstwhile Belize jail used to be. Called “Her Majesty’s Prison” in its glory days, the museum has preserved one jail cell as a museum exhibit where in you can even see the graffiti drawn by the inmates of the jail cell.

Don’t be disappointed by its size; good things after all, come in small packages. The Museum of Belize is packed to capacity with interesting artifacts, the most notable one being the Mayan exhibits. A majority of their permanent exhibits are dominated by the Mayan period including Mayan jade, ceramic, stamps, bottles and coins. There’s also a section that is dedicated to the insects of Belize.

  • I am off dual nationality. Irish and British. Born and lived all my life in the North of Ireland. So being an Ex British Soldier, I know a lot about the British Empire. However visiting this museum I would NEVER tell anyone I'm British. The horror that went on in the times that Belize was being inhabited was just unthinkable. I won't go into the history lesson, no sane person liked history at school but if you are in Belize City, visit this place. Sign the visitors book and please leave a donation.

  • Such a beautiful experience for the second time since i was a kid coming to the OLD PRISON (Museum of Belize). It has upgraded to nice cold AC, very clean and precise. Beautiful history for a quick learn of the Old Belize that once was. ❤

  • Was not open on a Monday, but they still opened the gates for us. Nice little Museum with a lot to read. Good if you have some time to kill.

  • Really interesting information about the country and its people. The guides we were with was very informative. Really enjoyed.

  • If you're interested in Belizian culture and history this is the place to be.
