ABCNews.com Visits for End of the World Story

ABC Crew 2On Friday, November 16, 2012, ABCNews.com sent a crew from New York City to visit the Penn Museum’s MAYA 2012: Lords of Time exhibition and interview Penn Museum experts for a five-part website series on the end-of-the-world cultural phenomenon that has grown from excitement about the Maya calendar.

Anchor Dan Kloeffler, joined by producer Lindsey Snell and photographer Cliff Wilson, toured the MAYA 2012 exhibition, interviewed co-curators Loa Traxler and Simon Martin—and even tried some of the Maya inspired hot chocolate (complete with a chili-hot kick!) in the Museum’s Pepper Mill Café.

Is Dan worried about the end? Should he be? Watch the series to find out!

The series went live on the morning on December 19—Watch the video at ABCNews.com.
