“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.
