Have you ever seen a round calendar weighing tons, that tells time for hundreds of years? Or climbed 91 steps to the top of a pyramid? Explore fascinating Meso-American civilizations from Mexico through Central America and their important contributions to our calendar system, mathematics, pyramids, astronomy, hieroglyphics, and the arts. Authentic ancient and symbolic animal hieroglyphs still used today are your tools for creating a clay plaque as a wall hanging.  Our hieroglyphs are also great surfaces for using as a rubbing surface to create greeting cards. Ages 5 and up. Contact Nicole at or 355-5660 to reserve your spot.
