The museum and blue morpho butterfly breeding project are really interesting. Fun for kids and adults. Loved it.

I finally got to see the NHM at Chaa Creek, and wow, was it worth it. It was a great 5 minute hike up the hill to get to it. Meshack, the guide, was outstanding. Talk about a wealth of information! He knows the insects, birds(he also leads birding adventures), wildlife, culture, and history like nobody else.

They have quite the insect display there too. They also have a really neat bird nest exhibit. You'll get to see some of the snakes found in Belize too, although they are preserved, and not alive. There are displays of Mayan artifacts, which have some neat stories of their own. You can also see a replication of what an ancient Mayan abode might have looked like. You can take a picture under all the masks as you leave.

After the NHM, Meshack also showed me their butterfly farm, which is impressive considering they have thousands of butterflies in various states. You can learn all about blue morphos there.

I'll definitely be taking friends there.
