From 16.12.2017 to 03.02.2019 the Science Center phaeno in Wolfsburg is showcasing a major special exhibition on the fascinating subject of time for the first time.

3,000 years of advanced cultures

extended until 8 April 2018!

The Incas called it "the sun's beads", while the Spanish were only interested in its material value. The mythology of Inca gold is rooted in the irreconcilability of these two value systems. In this exhibition, the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site takes up where "IncaGold" (2004/2005) left off, presenting several new exhibits shedding insights into the civilizations of the Incan and pre-Incan periods.
