Fodor's Review

This small museum—the name refers to the little benches in a nearby riverside park—presents changing exhibitions on Orange Walk District history and culture. Among the permanent displays are artifacts from Lamanai and Cuello. A restaurant, Paniscea, is located under the House of Culture. Las Banquitas is one of four House of Culture museums; the other three are in Belize City, Corozal Town, and Benque Viejo. These museums are operated by NICH, the National Institute of Culture and History.
