Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru at Boca Raton Museum of Art, October 16, 2021 – March 6, 2022
“Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru makes its world premiere in South Florida at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, beginning on October 16, 2021.
The museum experience consists of one of the most impressive gold collections ever to tour the globe, highlighted by a fully intact Gold attire of a Chimú Emperor that dates to 1300 AD, predating the Inca Empire. On loan from Museo Larco and Museo Manuel Chávez Ballon, the exhibition features a stunning selection of 192 priceless artifacts that include the spectacular gold and silver royal burial garments of legendary Andean lords.
This all-new, media-rich, artifact-based museum experience transpors guests into the jewel of the only cradle of civilization in the Southern Hemisphere, the Incan city of Machu Picchu. The exhibition focuses on ancient societies that predate the Inca empire. Rivaled only by Ancient Egypt in longevity and by the Roman Empire in engineering, Andean societies dominated a substantial segment of South America for over 3,000 years.
Visitors to the exhibition will embark on a journey through time and discover a culture that thrived in a genuinely spiritual civilization.” — Boca Raton Museum of Art
