This is extremely small in comparison to what we consider a museum in America. They make up for the size by offering a great guided tour and oral history. This is better than any history class or quick read. Garifuna history comes to life within a few minutes of the brief tour

Gulisi Garifuna Museum is a must-do to learn about the Garifuna culture, food and music. Audrey, has a great understanding of the history and is an interesting story-teller. She is happy to answer everyone's questions and does not rush anyone along. Tour can be as quick as 30 minutes, or one can linger for an hour or so. When friends... More

Our young lady guide did a very good job explaining the Garifuna culture and people in this small museum that had many posters also explaining the history. Nice demonstration on the importance of maize in the culture. Located next to a school where the Garifuna culture and language are being taught to keep it alive.

This was a very educational stop on our visit to Dangriga. We had, not surprisingly, never heard of the Garifuna culture before and found the museum to be very interesting. It's on the Hummingbird Hwy just before you reach the main village and worth the stop and the small entry fee of $5USD.

Gulisi Garifuna Museum is a museum that provides information on the local Garifuna culture of the Belizean Caribbean coast. The museum is quite small, the exponates are a bit old and fairly run-down, so that the entry fee might seem high (they charge foreigners more than Belizeans) - but we did it anyways and were not disappointed. We were lucky... More

Right on the south side of Hummingbird Highway. It's a small museum that tells about the Garifuna people. I had not heard of these people, but they were a mix of central and south African, caribs, and other caribbean natives. After being defeated and relocated by the British, they moved from south america to the Dangriga area (ok, a very... More

even though the signs on the walls were turning yellow and sometimes hard to read, it didnt matter because the explanation was nice to listen too as well, definitely ask to be shown around when you are there

Learned a lot about the Garifuna people. We were lucky to join in with a school group and got the whole story - very fascinating!
