Superbreak, the short break specialist, has created a new range of packages that will allow customers take in the latest exhibition at the British Museum.

At the end of September, a major exhibition opened at the British Museum and through Superbreak's services, customers can take care of all their holiday needs - flights, London hotels and exhibition entrance - through one website.

This new British Museum showpiece brings myth to life by exploring the Aztec civilisation through the divine, military and political role of the last elected ruler, Moctezuma II who reigned from AD 1502 to 1520. The story is told with elaborate painted screens and mother-of-pearl encrusted panels that are being lent to the UK for the first time. This is the final part of a series of exhibitions at the museum that have focused on the lives of four of the great world’s greatest historical rulers. Superbreak has packages available that include timed entry tickets to the exhibition and overnight accommodation at a wide range of boutique hotels London.

From his capital in Tenochtitlan, the site of modern Mexico City, Moctezuma’s empire comprised much of modern highland Mexico, stretching from the Gulf Coast to the Pacific Ocean. Moctezuma’s world was unrivalled until the devastating arrival of strangers - Cortés and his Spanish fleet. The legacy of this tumultuous event and the semi-mythical status of Moctezuma will be reassessed through the display of imposing stone sculptures and rare gold and turquoise objects, many of which will be seen for the first time in the UK.

Superbreak's Moctezuma package will run for the duration of the exhibition.
