Museum of Belize

Map
8 Gabourel Ln., Central Bank Compound, Belize City,

Small but jam-packed, the excellent museum has a native butterfly collection, historic photographs, and rare Mayan artifacts, such as geometric-patterned vessels, stone earplugs, and a detailed replica of a 10-pound carved jade head—the largest such object ever discovered.
