Aztecs will be one of the greatest exhibitions of Aztec culture ever seen. 350 spectacular works will trace the life and times of the Aztecs, an extraordinary people, who in the space of only 200 years (from 1325 to 1521) created one of the most impressive civilisations in the world.
Among the remarkable objects on show will be works of turquoise, gold and jade as well as monumental stone sculptures and a dramatic display evoking an Aztec temple. Some of the works in the exhibition are being shown outside Mexico for the first time and include works which have never been seen in public before.
Aztecs is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the grandeur and sophistication of this once great civilisation.
