    Genghis Khan

    Ever wonder if the legend is true?

    Explore the culture, conquests and heritage of the world's greatest conqueror when the treasures and stories of Genghis Khan are presented in Charlotte for the first time. 

    Experience life in 13th-century Mongolia, entering the tents, battlegrounds and marketplaces of a vanished world. Explore Genghis Khan's life and those of his sons and grandsons during the formation, peak and decline of the Mongol Empire.

    View gold jewelry and ornaments, silk robes, musical instruments, pottery, sophisticated weaponry and numerous other fascinating relics and elaborate artifacts. More than 200 objects will be on display — the largest collection ever assembled of the treasures of Genghis Khan, including artifacts from the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.

    Enter the exotic atmosphere of ancient Mongolia and meet the man Time and The Washington Post named as "the most important person of the last millennium." Visit this spectacular and uniquely interactive exhibition that tells the story of Genghis Khan — his life, his land, his people, his culture — and his enduring legacy.

    Presented to the community by Wells Fargo
