TURN BACK TIME: AZTECS MELBOURNE MUSEUM

If I could turn back time, if I could find a way, I would not want to hang around too long with the Aztecs.
Human sacrifice is mostly the reason why.
Plus their priests fondness for wearing a sacrifice’s skin until it rotted away.

Although they did like their chocolate so it wasn’t all bad news…

On a cold and blustery Saturday morning we escaped the cold weather for Melbourne Museum’s latest exhibition.

Masks, sculptures and tapestries from Mexico’s major museums, including a replica of the Templo Mayor, have been brought together for an in depth look into a powerful civilisation and their tragic end. Plus some truly gruesome stories. Don’t miss this one.
