Machu Picchu: Unveiling The Mystery Of The Incas

This is a closed, past exhibit; it is not available for viewing.

This exhibit invited visitors to travel into the past, first to the famed archaeological site with the 1911 Yale Peruvian Scientific Expedition and then further back in time to when Machu Picchu functioned as an Inca country palace in the late 15th century. The exhibit featured more than 400 objects collected by noted Yale professor of Latin American Studies and archaeologist Hiram Bingham.  This exhibit was organized by Yale University with support from the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
