GREENSBORO, NC – – The Greensboro Science Center (GSC) is excited to announce a new traveling exhibit. The secrets of an ancient world await in Mystery of the Mayan Medallion.

In this immersive exhibit, guests are transported to Palenque, Mexico, where an archeological team has mysteriously disappeared from a dig site while investigating rumors of a priceless jade medallion. Guests will translate glyphs, discover which rainforest animals are poisonous, learn how the Mayans recorded dates, take rubbings from a sarcophagus, and interpret a battle mural while following the clues the team left behind to locate the precious medallion.

Mystery of the Mayan Medallion will run from June 1, 2023 – September 4, 2023. GSC members can enjoy a special sneak peek on June 1, 2023 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. The exhibit opens to the public at 12 p.m. on June 1. Admission to Mystery of the Mayan Medallion is included with general admission or GSC membership. Mystery of the Mayan Medallion is an exhibit by the Discovery Network, a statewide program of the Museum of Discovery in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Members of the media working on assignment are invited to take photos and video on Wednesday, May 31 or Thursday, June 1 and are asked to reach out to the GSC’s marketing team at rrobinson@greensboroscience.org or by calling (336) 288-3769 x1305 to confirm your attendance.
