Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed

Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed is an amazing exhibition that immerses guests in the culture of the ancient Maya. Guests will explore the rituals, games, architecture, clothing, jewelry, and daily life of the Classic Period and today.

As a volunteer, you will engage guests by facilitating a number of components in the exhibition including a scale model of Caracol and a full-sized replica frieze from Xunantunich. You’ll assist guests with a virtual excavation of a cave burial, and roam with touchable objects similar to those in the exhibition such as jade, shells, and stingray spines. There will also be volunteer-staffed Exploration Stations (a.k.a. touch-carts) on glyphs and stelae, Maya elite, and everyday life activities like weaving and food production.

Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed will be the first exhibition in the Museum’s new Anschutz Gallery—which will adjoin the current Phipps Special Exhibits Gallery for large exhibitions of this kind. The Anschutz Gallery is located in the Museum’s new 126,000-square-foot addition, the Morgridge Family Exploration Center, which opened February 14, 2014.

Training begins in January, and the exhibition runs February 14, 2013 – August 24, 2014.

One shift per week. Availabe shift times:
Friday: 4 - 8 p.m.

To apply please complete the online Adult Volunteer Application.
