$12 for One Ticket to Maya: Secrets of their Ancient World Exhibit and General Admission to the Royal Ontario Museum (Up to $25 Value)
A collaboration between the ROM, the Canadian Museum of Civilization (CMC), and the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), Maya: Secrets of their Ancient World affords visitors a glimpse into the mysterious history of an ancient civilization. Chronicling the daily life of the Maya during the Classic Period ranging from 250 to 900 CE, the exhibit showcases close to 250 artifacts––many freshly excavated––culled from the collections of Mexican museums, the British Museum, and Princeton University Art Museum. Visitors wend past the stoic faces peering from large sculptures, or discover how the Maya lived their lives by perusing cases full of ceramics, jewellery, and ancient magazine covers. The engaging exhibit clears up the 2012 end-of-days rumour started long ago by the misinterpreted Maya calendar and details the enigmatic and complex causes for the collapse of the Maya society centuries ago.
Royal Ontario Museum
The Royal Ontario Museum is among the world’s leading museums of natural history and world cultures. By combining universal cultures and natural history into one museum, the ROM aims to engage its audiences from across the globe in the relationship between nature and humanity. This fundamental link is explored through the museum's many collections and programs, offering a wide breadth of experience in both areas.
2014 also marks 100 years since the ROM's momentous opening, and the museum is planning a year-long anniversary celebration of both its legacy and its potential going forward. The ROM will kick off another century of lively, relevant content and programming to build a community among future generations of visitors who pass through its halls.
