Enjoy The End of Time Exhibition and Talk Package!
Did the Maya really predict the world will end December 21, 2012—and isn’t that getting close? Dr. Anthony Aveni, bestselling author of The End of Time: The Maya Mystery of 2012, explores theories about the widely prophesized “end of the world”—and considers why cataclysmic events enjoy widespread appeal in contemporary American pop culture. Visit Penn Museum’s critically acclaimed special exhibition, MAYA 2012: Lords of Time, explore ancient treasures recently discovered at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Copan in Honduras, and find out what the Maya of ancient times—and of today—really thought.
The lecture will be held at 6 pm and you may select either the 4:30 pm or 7:30 pm exhibition entrance.
