Immerse yourself into the drama and beauty of the famous Incan empire and its predecessors with the first ever Peruvian art exhibition set to stage on Australian shores.

Only exhibiting in Canberra, this impressive, larger-than-life display of artefacts will showcase the vibrant ancient cultures of Peru, with more than 200 stunning works of art of the old Incan civilisation had ever produced including stone calendars, gold armour, jewellery, embroidered cloths, and art fashioned from silver, turquoise and gold.

The priceless Inca treasures have been loaned from several museums in Lima and Peru's National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History.

The exhibition will be on show at the National Gallery in Canberra from 6th December 2013 - 21st April, 2014. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketek.

There will be only two sessions per day, but once you enter the exhibition, you can stay and take as much time as you want.

This one-off exhibition is one of the biggest summer events happening in Canberra region not to be missed. Transport yourself back to the world of the largest pre-Hispanic empire of South America and uncover the mysteries of the Incas.
