The museum of Belize has been opened for 8 years and the Jades and Maya Masterpieces exhibit has been there from the start. And now it will get a boost.
Today Dr. David Brown of UNESCO handed over a cheque of $25,000 to Lita Krohn of the Museum of Belize. The donation will be used to expand the existing collection so that it, quote, "completes the Maya story." This new exhibit will be called: The Maya Story: The People who worked the jades of Belize.
The museum has been open to the public for eight years and last year alone had over ten thousand visitors.
