About Belize City
Most tourists use Belize City as a transportation hub and spend little time in the city. With that said, Belize City is still the cultural centre of the country and offers a comparably large number of cultural attractions.
- The Museum of Belize (City centre, walking distance to water taxi terminals as well as the "Tourism Village"). A former prison and now the national museum of Belize.
- The Bliss Centre for the Performing Arts is the largest cultural center in Belize and also hosts the National Art Collection of Belize.
- Image Factory. Is an independent gallery and cultural center with changing exhibitions and a small book shop. Probably the best place in Belize to learn about contemporary local art.
