Immerse yourself in the genius of the Maya – early disrupters living in cities of stone carved into the rainforest. A civilization of astronomers, mathematicians, inventors and gods.
The mysteries of the Maya come to life in MAYA: The Great Jaguar Rises. Featuring one of the most substantial Maya collections in the world, with over 300 priceless artifacts, primarily dating from 200 through 900 AD, most of which have never before traveled outside of Guatemala.
Deep in the tropical rainforests, the Classical Maya civilization reached improbable heights and mysteriously collapsed. The bustling ancient cities in the lowlands of Guatemala, Mexico, Belize and Honduras were abandoned. Yet, Maya culture has never disappeared. Their descendants still live across Central America and Maya communities have succeeded in preserving their identity, languages and traditions.
Visitors to the exhibition can explore the awe-inspiring Maya architecture and astonishing cultural accomplishments in immersive exhibition spaces, decipher hieroglyphs, learn about the intricate Maya calendar or explore the ancient burial site of Uxul. And above all, get to know how this remarkably sophisticated civilization built complex cities in the middle of the jungle, why these cities were eventually abandoned, and in what ways Maya culture has changed since then.
Maya: The Great Jaguar Rises is produced by MuseumsPartner in collaboration with La Ruta Maya Foundation in Guatemala and is supported by the Ministerio de Cultura y Deportes de Guatemala.
