Upon his discovery of Machu Picchu in 1911, Hiram Bingham-- an archaeologist and lecturer at Yale--excavated around 4,000 artifacts and relics and took them to Yale University. The pieces, which include pottery, weaponry, and tools, are acompanied by several videos and original photographs from Bingham’s expedition. Each room includes explanations in English.
