The Gulisi Garifuna Museum (tel. 501/669-0639, ngcbelize [at] gmail [dot] com, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Mon.–Fri., 8 a.m.–noon Sat., US$5) is a mile west of Dangriga , on the south side of the highway; you’ll see it on your right when driving into Dangriga, next to the thrusting Chuluhadiwa Garifuna Monument (taxi from downtown US$2–3).
The small, four-room display is packed with a wealth of information and an interesting collection of artifacts; feel free to talk history with the curator, Peter Ciego. The museum is named after the person thought to be the first Garifuna woman to arrive and settle in Dangriga. She had 13 sons, and many of Dangriga’s modern residents believe they are descended from her.
In 2008, the “language, dance, and music of the Garifuna” was inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
