Tales of the Maya Skies companion exhibit


If all that you remember learning about the Maya is that they built some pyramids and then mysteriously disappeared - it's time for a refresher course! COME AND FIND OUT HOW MUCH MORE WE NOW KNOW of this amazing culture, its science and mathematics, its stories and explanations of the Universe, and its people... who, far from having disappeared, still exist in large numbers today!

Chabot's Tales of the Maya Skies planetarium show features the scientific achievements and cosmology of the Maya. The companion exhibit explores in more detail the ANCIENT MAYA WORLD, cosmology, mathematical system, calendar, language, and writing. The exhibit's content is bilingual in English and Spanish.
