EXPERIENCE THE RISE AND FALL OF THE MOST ADVANCED CIVILISATION IN THE AMERICAN CONTINENT.
The priceless exhibition presents the original treasures of a once ruling nation of South America, through which we can gain insight into the closed world of an outdated civilization. The exhibition was established with the support of the Peruvian Government on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Peru. This part of the gold treasure left the borders of the South American continent for the first time ever to Europe.
An invaluable gold treasure
2200 m2 exhibition area
Hundreds of original exhibits
The 1000-year history of the gold treasure
The exhibition showcases the introduction of the American continent. The mystery of bloody rituals and the cult of gold as divine essence literally creates a mythical empire from the Incas civilization. To this day, this empire commands the same astonishment and respect as it used to amaze the Spanish conquerors. Immersed in death, conquest, desire, and mystery, the world's most valuable gold collection is exposed through the unique, almost unearthly artifacts, that are referred as cursed treasures by some cultures even today. The lost gold evokes the Inca culture, that has been flourishing before the arrival of Europeans, and shows how the glitter of gold has made the whole world wonder.
Presented in dark and mythical environment with background music of the Peruvian highlands the unusual exhibition shows the collection of the UNESCO World Heritage. The beautiful and invaluable worthy cultural objects, expose visitors to an apparently different world of exotic universes. Besides jewelry and decorative objects with mythological scenes, there are utensils of daily use and musical instruments.
