This blockbuster exhibition features more than 200 priceless artefacts and dramatic multimedia that tell the story of the spectacular and ultimately tragic rise and fall of the Aztec empire.

Experience the epic but fleeting 500 year old story of the Aztec civilisation which was home to gods and demons, warriors and slaves, nobles and commoners.

Step into their world and marvel at the extravagant possessions of the Aztec emperors while exploring their sacrificial rituals and uncovering the mysteries of the Aztec afterlife.

Some of the many exhibition highlights include a life-size Eagle Warrior sculpture, intricate models of Aztec gardens and marketplaces and a scale model replica of the Great Temple, Huey Teocalli, a site considered to be the centre of the universe.

There is something for visitors of all ages with a character trail for children to collect fun stamps and discover who they might have been in the Aztec world.
