Pointe-à-Callière is pleased to present a major exclusive international exhibition, The Aztecs, People of the Sun. Visitors will have the unique privilege of learning about the people who founded the fabulous city of Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztec Empire and the site where Mexico City was built after the Spanish Conquest in 1521.
Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal’s Archaeology and History Complex, has welcomed 100,000 visitors since the opening of the exhibition The Greeks – Agamemnon to Alexander the Great last December 12, a clear indication of the enthusiasm this fascinating and never-before-seen exhibition has generated. There are less than four weeks left to see the exhibition in Montréal—that is, until Sunday, April 26—before it continues its North American odyssey, travelling to the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, the Field Museum in Chicago and, finally, to the National Geographic Museum in Washington.
