Responding to popular demand we have reopened the Machu Picchu exhibition for a closer look at the intriguing people and places that make up the Andes. At the center of the exhibition is the dynamic virtual reality tour of the ancient lost city of the Incas. The tour provides over two hundred, navigable, 360° views of the ruins and allows visitors to independently explore the natural maze-like structure of the famous city encountering buried artifacts, video scholars, archival photos, and animated Andean animals along the way.

The exhibition is divided into three galleries. The central gallery leads the visitor into the city of Machu Picchu to learn about Inca culture. In this gallery the visitor can view the virtual reality tour, ten explore exhibits with information pertaining to Inca religion, subsistence, and architecture.
