Familiar to most but understood by few, the history of the ancient Maya is shrouded in mystery. Their secrets have remained buried for centuries – until now.

Take a journey through the mysteries of the Maya in this landmark exhibition. Discover the sacred roles of their divine rulers, the elaborate writing and counting systems, the cycles of life and death… and the truth behind the 2012 end-of-days legend.

This exhibition is co-produced by the Royal Ontario Museum and the Canadian Museum of Civilization in collaboration with the National Institute of Anthropology and History (CONACULTA-INAH).
