My whole family loved the museum. The exhibits are kid friendly and very informative about this fascinating community. I loved the language evolution over 400 years.

October is slow in Dangriga as they prepare for Settlement day celebration, so I was most fortunate to get a long, detailed tour of the museum. This is a must see for anyone wanting to learn about the Garifuna culture.

A good stop when you only have a little time but want to do something when passing through. Small, but very interesting, and the staff are very friendly.

You will love the warm welcome by Mr. Arana, a very knowledgeable and talented young man will take you step by step through the stages of the Garifuna journey into Belize and their accomplishments. He truly is an asset to the culture.
