Augmented Reality Maya Chocolate Plate

October 20, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology
11 Divinity Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02138 United States


“Shrink” yourself down to “walk” into an ancient Maya vessel using augmented reality! Maya women were often essential for uniting kingdoms. When a marriage was arranged between Maya royal families, kings often exchanged gifts of three-legged plates like this for serving chocolate. Use the museum’s iPad as a magic window to discover fine details on one such plate that cannot be seen on the actual artifact. A gallery facilitator will guide you through the experience and will share more about the Maya. Regular museum admission rates apply.
