Maya civilization was one of the longest-lived in the Americas. Maya calendrics are at the heart of this exhibition which presents the story of the real Maya which spans over three millennia. Topics include the evolution of kingship, the development of writing and math, astronomy and timekeeping. Information on the latest discoveries, such as a mural showing calendrical computations of a Maya priest, and the uncovering of a second inscription marking the December 21, 2012 date are included.
Let's gather in the main lobby across from the ticket area near the large bench (look for the green tiara).
Our group has a corporate membership with the museum so the discount price will be $15.00 per ticket. I will present the paperwork at the corporate window, and everyone pays individually for their ticket. The ticket includes The Maya 2012 Exhibit, The Gems of the Medici Exhibit, and general admission access to the permanent exhibit hall.
Please allow plenty of time for traffic and to locate parking since it is the last day of Spring Break.
There is very limited free parking near the museum entrance with additional free parking in Hermann Park. Garage parking is available at the museum for $10.00 when presenting your museum ticket.
