About exhibit:

The ancient metropolis of Teotihuacan is one of the largest and most important archaeological sites in the world.

At its peak in 400 CE, Teotihuacan was the cultural, political, economic, and religious center of Mesoamerica, and inhabited by a multiethnic population of more than 100,000 people.

This historic exhibition will bring Teotihuacan to life through over 200 recently excavated artifacts and artworks from the site, and is a rare opportunity to view rarely loaned objects from major collections in Mexico – many on view in the U.S. for the first time.
