Forget about the world ending and all those rumors about Dec. 21, 2012. The question of the moment is: What will happen on Oct. 26, 2012?
If you guessed that our Maya 2012: Prophecy Becomes History exhibit opens, you’d be correct. See for yourself why the Maya civilization was successful for over three millennia … and find out when (and whether) the world’s actually going to end on that infamous day in December.
Tickets to Maya 2012 also include admission to another new exhibit opening this Friday, Gems of the Medici. So now that we’ve made you a deal you can’t refuse, don’t. Buy your tickets and find out whether we’ll all make it to 2013.
If you haven’t made it to HMNS to view the incredible array of artifacts recovered from the RSS Titanic’s wreck site more than 3 miles beneath the ocean, you should be suffering from some serious FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out.)
We extended our Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition through Sept. 23 due to popular demand — and guess what? It’s Sept. 17! I know, we don’t know where the time went either.
But we do know that more than 300 artifacts from the ship and its passengers, their compelling human stories, and a true-to-life retelling of the night’s events on April 15, 1912 are a sight to behold. So behold it, before it’s too late!
Tickets are available in-person at the box office or online right here.
There may have been a Terra Cotta Warriors II, but — mark our words — there will not be a Terra Cotta Warriors III.
HMNS’ second special exhibition of the exquisitely detailed and distinct warriors that guarded the tomb of China’s First Emperor, Qin Shihuang, extends the story of the Qin, Han and Tang dynasties with 200 ancient works of art, including newly-discovered artifacts unearthed from imperial, royal and elite tombs.
The stunning exhibition — which also featured the premiere of a Terra Cotta Warrior with its original green paint still intact, thanks to new conservation techniques — closes Sept. 3.
What better way to celebrate Labor Day than to examine up-close the extreme care that went into each warrior’s individualized features, the fine ornaments and sacred objects, or the extraordinary works of art?
HMNS is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Sept. 1 through Sept. 3. Click here for tickets.
