Fodor's Expert Review Museum of Belize

Fort George Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

This small but fascinating museum, under the aegis of the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH), was the Belize City jail from 1857 to 1993. Permanent displays include ancient jade and other Mayan artifacts; medicinal, ink, and alcoholic-beverage bottles dating from the 17th century; Belize and British Honduran coins and colorful postage stamps; and an actual prison cell. Temporary exhibitions change periodically.
