This turnkey traveling exhibition is developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Sport, Patrimonio Cultural y Natural, Guatemala and is curated by Prof.Dr.Dr.h.c. Nikolai Grube. The artifacts are drawn from the National Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology (MUNAE) and the La Ruta Maya Foundation.
Visitors step deep into the tropical rain forests of Central America, where Maya ruins witness an age of magnificence. There, Classic Maya civilization reached improbable heights and mysteriously collapsed. Yet, their culture has never disappeared — ancient traditions and languages are still alive. This turnkey traveling exhibition sheds light on the true story of this powerful culture from ancient times to present day. We reveal more than 300 spectacular original Maya objects from Guatemala, reflecting classic and contemporary Maya culture and history. Visitors can explore the awe-inspiring Maya architecture and astonishing cultural accomplishments in unique, immersive exhibition spaces.
