Located in Belize City, this museum focusses on the history and culture of Belize. It was originally the location of a prison during British colonial rule and then the site of Belize City Prison until 1993. It was finally restored and turned into a museum in 2002. The exhibits focusses on Maya history, the prison's history, colonial life, and showcases the culture and way of life of the various ethnicities living in Belize. Good place to get a proper understanding of the country.

This 1857 structure is the former colonial prison of the mid 1800’s good for a cultured experience. It is a historical road map documenting over 350 years of Belize’s history and its people through photographs and artifacts. Its permanent exhibit of ancient Maya artifacts includes pottery, ornate stelae, a replica of the famous ‘Jade Head’ and beautiful pieces of Maya jade and stone jewelry.
