Visitors will discover the powerful and revealing world of Maya. The ancient Maya was a Mesoamerican civilisation that left a far-reaching legacy of architectural, cultural and artistic achievements.

This was a period of warriors, shamanic rituals, human sacrifice, jade treasures, advanced knowledge and veneration of the cosmos. More than 400 stunning objects from museums and Maya sites in Mexico will go on display.

Maya: the revelation of an endless time has been produced by the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) and is part of the 2015 ‘Year of Mexico in the United Kingdom’ and ‘Year of the United Kingdom in Mexico’.

World Museum is the only UK institution to stage this amazing collection.
