MAYA: The Exhibition - The Great Jaguar Rises - Union Station Kansas City

Welcome to a new view of the Maya people. A sophisticated civilization buried in the heart of the rainforest. Immerse yourself in the genius of the Maya – early disrupters living in cities of stone carved into the rainforest. By studying the stars they developed a calendar more accurate than any other in the world. Their discovery of the number zero opened the door for advanced mathematics. Rubber balls were essential to Maya sports centuries before the “discovery” of vulcanized rubber. And they introduced the world to chocolate. Theirs was a civilization of astronomers, mathematicians, inventors and gods.
