Maya: Hidden World Revealed

When: March 7-Aug. 24 2014

The ancient ball court game played by the Maya was pretty simple: Players would hit a hard rubber ball with their hips in a huge court, trying to put it through one of two small rings. But it was heady stuff: Both winners and losers could be sacrificed afterward. And that's just one reason to visit the groundbreaking Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science (2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver, dmns.org, $5-$22), where you can see artifacts, and let kids learn history, hands-on. The museum's open every day, and the show's up through Aug. 24. — Edie Adelstein
