DENVER - In the mood for some exploration through cities of ancient times?

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science has the largest exhibition on the Maya ever to be held in the U.S.

And it's open to the public right now.

The exhibit include artifacts that have never been seen by the human eye until now, hands on activities, a re-creation of an underworld cave and the starry night sky.

"Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed not only shows us a glimpse of this incredible culture, but it paves the way for other world-class exhibitions of its kind that provide in-depth explorations of ancient cultures," said George Sparks, President and CEO of the Museum.

Recently, the museum also has added a 126,000-square-foot addition.

The new wing has several sustainable features that puts it on track to become the first LEED-Platinum-certified municipal building in Denver.

It was designed to be Denver's most energy-efficient building.

One part of that addition is now open to the public.

The Morgridge Family Exploration Center has three above-ground levels that gives families a chance to explore nature and science to the next level.
