This landmark exhibition will take you on a journey through the mysteries of the Maya – the sacred roles of their divine rulers, their elaborate writing and counting systems, their cycles of life and death… and the truth behind the 2012 end-of-days legend. Travel back in time to the heart of a Maya city over 1000 years ago, and discover the many secrets behind the mysteries surrounding the Ancient Maya Classic Period (250 – 900 CE). The exhibition brings together a collection of nearly 250 original Mayan artifacts – most selected from numerous Mexican museums in the Yucatan Peninsula region where the Maya mainly lived. Many, only recently excavated, are recognized as among the most significant archaeological finds ever discovered. Uncover the legend here.
