"Today is a landmark day for our institution and marks our continued success in presenting compelling exhibitions that celebrate the visual history of world civilizations.

Featuring the most impressive Andean gold collection ever to travel the world, this enchanting museum experience highlights a stunning selection of 192 artifacts from royal tombs, including spectacular objects that belonged to noble Andean lords, many never-before-seen out of Peru. One of the exhibition's highlights is a fully intact gold attire of a Chimú Emperor that dates to 1300 AD.

"It's enthralling for Cityneon to have the opportunity to present to new audiences these remarkable pieces of rare Andean artifacts. Cityneon's strong track record of staging immersive experiences globally with record-breaking visitor numbers reflects our strength in delivering high-quality experiences to visitors from around the world. Through this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, visitors will have the opportunity to come face-to-face with history in a way that has never been done before," said Executive Chairman & Group Chief Executive Officer of Cityneon, Ron Tan. "Guests are going to be thrilled to encounter the ancient cultures who lived in this city 7,000 feet above sea level in the Andes Mountains."

Rivaled only by Ancient Egypt in longevity and by the Roman Empire in engineering, Andean societies dominated a substantial segment of South America for over 3,000 years straight through the reign of the Incan Empire. Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru will showcase Peruvian culture's rich histories and traditions to the public like never before.

"South Florida, known as the 'Gateway to Latin America,' is the ideal location to host this world premiere, and having the opportunity to present this exhibition at the Boca Raton Museum of Art is truly a pleasure," described President and Chairman of World Heritage Exhibitions, Anthony Tann. "This exhibition is exciting and engaging, and thus, we expect Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru to be the largest cultural attraction throughout the region this fall."

During their visit to the exhibition, guests are taken to the mysterious city in the sky, built and abandoned within a century. They will continue on a journey through the vast expanse of Andean history, traveling alongside the mythical hero Ai Apaec, and discovering the mysteries of Andean cosmology.

"Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru showcases the extraordinary and rich history of ancient Peru. It brings to life the various cultures that have lived in the land of the Incas and Machu Picchu over an astounding 3,000 years," stated President of Museo Larco, Andres Alvarez-Calderon.

Due to the current global pandemic, the need for social distancing, and other measures to prevent the coronavirus spread, the number of visitors allowed to visit Machu Picchu yearly has dipped to 250,000. This exhibition expands the ability to experience Machu Picchu to the world. Here, the first-ever virtual reality experience of Machu Picchu will be unveiled, allowing guests a window into the unrivaled beauty and flourishing landscape.

"Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru will allow the stories and riches of Andean civilizations to travel the world," said Inkaterra Asociacion founder, Joe Koechlin. "We could not be more delighted about sharing our history and culture with the people of South Florida and beyond."

Beginning on October 16, 2021, at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru will start its limited run in South Florida before leaving the U.S. and embarking on a multi-country, worldwide tour. The state-of-the-art exhibition will encompass the entire museum, including all galleries on both floors. Exhibition ticket prices start at $19.95. Tickets will go on sale later this summer. On May 18th, an online registration process to pre- register for tickets has opened. Those who pre-register will have early access to tickets when they go on sale to the public.
