Museum of Natural History

8 July 2009 No Comment

The Chaa Creek Natural History Museum was established in 1993 to become the first one of its kind in Belize, Central America.  The centre was created with the hope of providing a much needed natural and cultural history resource for Belizeans and international visitors, as well.  The exhibits within the Centre cover a wide range of topics from anthropology to zoology and were designed and individually constructed by our staff of experienced naturalist guides.  The Centre showcases the wonders of Belize’s natural world and fosters understanding of its fragile tropical habitats and their unique flora and fauna. Exhibits within the Centre shine the historical spotlight on the mysteries of the great Maya civilization of the past.  There are many artifacts on display that were unearthed by archaeologist conducting research here at Chaa Creek.  Each year, hundreds of local and international students visit the Museum and take advantage of this unique educational facility.
