Distinctive regional cultures flourished in Mexico from prehistoric times, until its contact with Europe during the sixteenth century. Early Mexican civilization is explored in Room 27, along with the Classic Veracruz and Huaxtec cultures and the Maya city states of the first millennium AD. The display includes stunning objects, including highly-prized turquoise mosaic, dating from the Mixtec-Aztec culture of AD 1400-1521, and stone sculptures of Huaxtec female deities from AD 900-1450.
