In the tropical rainforests, the Classical Maya civilization reached improbable heights and mysteriously collapsed. The bustling ancient cities in the lowlands of Guatemala, Mexico, Belize, and Honduras were abandoned. Yet, Maya culture has never disappeared. Their descendants still live across Central America and Maya communities have succeeded in preserving their identity, languages, and traditions. Taking a cultural-ecological approach, MAYA, gives a holistic image of Maya culture and shows how it has developed over time in relation to its environment—from its classical peak to the present.

Visitors can explore the awe-inspiring Maya architecture and astonishing cultural accomplishments in immersive exhibition spaces, decipher hieroglyphs, learn about the intricate Maya calendar or explore the ancient burial site of Uxul and, above all, get to know how this remarkably sophisticated civilization could built such complex cities in the middle of the jungle, why these cities were eventually abandoned and in what ways Maya culture has changed since then.
