Maya

The exhibition reveals the mystery, heritage and resilience of the Maya of Central America, one of the world's most fascinating civilizations. The Maya revered nature and lived according to an advanced social organization. They erected cities in the middle of the forest, built impressive temples, developed ingenious farming methods and dominated the region for centuries. Today, more than six million Maya are preserving their age-old language and culture.

The exhibition itinerary is divided into several areas, each presenting a scenography and atmosphere that reflects the knowledge and emotions of the subjects addressed and the objects on display. Among the exhibition themes are the Maya's tropical natural environment, their beliefs and their modern-day reality.

The collection of 300 artefacts—most of which had never been exhibited outside Guatemala before this exhibition was shown in Spain in 2017—testifies to their fabulous cultural wealth. Interactive stations, large-format video projections and enveloping sound environments round out the visitor experience. This is a journey back in time that you won't want to miss!
