Las Banquitas House of Culture

Located in the heart of Orange Walk Town, on Main Street, Las Banquitas House of Culture offers a unique historical collection depicting the evolution of northern Belize. From the ancient Maya development of the north to the cultural predominance of the Mestizo, learn the traditions and significance of this region. 

Discover the earlier logging practices and raw chicle productions of these communities and make sure to tour the New River bank, which has been a staple recreational area. It is from the “little benches” along the riverbank of this compound that the name “Banquitas” derived.
