Perot Museum: Maya - Hidden Worlds Revealed - Dallas
The exhibition brings together more than 200 authentic artifacts and immersive environments to explore the astonishing accomplishments of one of the most powerful indigenous Mesoamerican civilizations, that still has millions of living descendants today. Visitors will learn how the Maya built towering temples and created an intricate calendar system while discovering what archaeologists have uncovered about the once-hidden ancient Maya, and the unresolved questions about why these ancient cities were abandoned. Through hands-on activity stations, guests can decipher hieroglyphs, learn cultural and architectural techniques, and explore an underworld cave, ancient burial site, mural room and more. The bilingual exhibition, presented in English and Spanish, requires a surcharge for members and non-members.

Guest speaker is Sally Rodriguez, who worked with the City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department for more than 30 years. Among other things, Sally was responsible for historical research and the promotion of the historic legacy of the Dallas Park System. She is the author of Images of America White Rock Lake, and White Rock Lake Revisited.

We will meet in Oak Corner, which is the separate building at the northeast corner of the parking lot.
