Join us as we learn how the Mayan temples were actually observatories that were critical to the lives of the Mayan civilization. The stars and planets became their calendar for floods, feasts, and wars. The messages they read in the stars guided all aspects of their lives. The show takes viewers on a tour of 6 Mayan temples – San Gervasio, Chichen Itzá, Uxmal, Edzná, Palenque and Bonampak Recommended for ages 5+.
Show times: 11:00 am, 11:30 am, Noon, 12:30 pm, 1:00 pm, 1:30 pm, 2:00 pm, and 2:30 pm.
