You've likely seen the promotional announcements that the Science Museum of Minnesota today opens a huge, new exhibit on the Maya culture – Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed. And coincidentally, archeologists today announced the discovery of another hidden Maya city buried in jungle undergrowth in southern Mexico, including a 75-foot-tall pyramid and housing to hold up to 40,000 people.

Want to learn more about SMM's new Maya exhibit? Here's a link to coverage in the Star-Tribune and also a piece by Minnesota Public Radio.
