This location is currently being refurbished but the Government House is an elegant structure that highlights Belize Colonial past. The museum is full with historical artifacts and wonderful views of the Caribbean Sea. This is a nice complimentary place to visit with The St. John's Cathedral tour.

The house is pretty but you only get to see 1/2 of the downstairs, the rest is used for offices. There is sparse information mostly about the house and a bit about the past leaders of Belize. There's an interesting first hand account of a hurricane in the 1800's or early 1900's I believe where all the locals fled to... More

Being in Belize for over two weeks, left me wondering and wanting more information about the history of the people and the country. The Mayan culture is very present dating back thousands of years and very famous, but what about the past 100 or event 50 years? While a very young country, Belize is steeped with culture and has a... More

This was part of our tour with the Calypso Train Tours with Dillon as our guide. He was extremely well versed in the history of Belize. Although we did not stop and tour the mansion, Dillon provided us with its history. It was a wonderful photo op. He explained that the Government House was the former Governor's residence and is...

I visited the former Governor's Mansion (Government House) now House of Culture, Belize City -- well upkeep ..... I must say that there is lots to see by way of contemporary local artwork, colonial furnishings, hurricane destruction to both the property and the country over the years, the Royal family member's visit, but no Guide was present to give a...

This is a tiny little museum, mostly local art, and a couple of small history related exhibits. It's right behind St John's, you may as well come here once you've gone there, but it's not worth it on it's own.

The Government House in Belize City is worth a trip, if you have time left over and nothing else to do. Entrance fee is 5$. You can learn and read a little bit of the countrys history and they have a little ert gallery. That is about it. Nice view over the ocean!!

It was a very inviting environment. I had the best childhood. The grounds with all the tress and right next to the sea made it very relaxing
