Fodor's Review

The mission of Benque House of Culture, one of the government-sponsored houses of culture in Belize (others are in Belize City, Orange Walk Town, Corozal Town, San Pedro, and San Ignacio/Santa Elena), is "promoting beauty and goodness." Housed in the former Benque police station, this little museum (and we do mean little) has displays on the history of Benque Viejo, and also offers classes for local schoolchildren and their teachers. There is also a large rosewood and mahogany marimba (a xylophone-like musical instrument) on display.
