At the Witte Museum in San Antonio, Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed explores the Mesoamerican civilization that flourished from about 1,800 to 500 years ago in southern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, and parts of Honduras and El Salvador. The exhibit (open through September 5, 2016) employs artifacts and interactive displays to interpret Mayan culture and its sophisticated calendars, mathematics, cosmology, architecture, agriculture, sports, and more. The exhibit marks the opening of the new 10,000-square-foot Mays Family Center, part of the Witte’s $100 million expansion and improvement project scheduled for completion next year.
