Visitors are able to see Belize through the ages — from Maya temples in the steaming jungle, to modern-day traditional healers.

You can expect an introduction to the history and geography of Belize, guided by visual displays of archaeological artifacts, butterflies, moths, insects, and amphibians that capture the curiosity of young children, students, and scientists alike.

The Centre is surrounded by a large forested area and it provides itself as an educational destination, which when combined with its Maya Medicine Rainforest Trail, offers an excellent fun activity for all.
