The Lost City is the name given by the current inhabitants, to Malpaís Prieto, a pre-Hispanic settlement located in the Zacapu Basin at the north part of Michoacán. It was founded around 1250 AD by Chichimecan groups.

The descendants of these Chichimecan groups, called Uacúsechas, would establish years later the ruling Tarascan dynasty on the shores of Lake Pátzcuaro that from its capital, Tzintzuntzan, would control great party of the current state of Michoacán and neighboring areas. This empire was at its height when the Spanish arrived in our continent.

The exhibition displays more than 80 pieces never seen before that come from excavations of Malpaís Prieto site, sponsored by the Center for Mexican and Central American Studies (CEMCA), and from the collection of the National Museum of Anthropology.
