POMPEII: The Exhibition examines the lives of residents of Pompeii before and after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius on August 24th, 79 A.D. Visitors to the exhibition travel back in time when Pompeii bustled as a commercial port and strategic military and trading city. In a media-rich, object-based, immersive experience, learn how the people of Pompeii lived, loved, worked, worshipped and found entertainment.
The special exhibition features over 150 artifacts on loan from the collection of the Naples National Archaeological Museum, including frescoes, mosaics, and statues from the sites hidden from view and forgotten for centuries until rediscovery over 250 years ago. The sudden disaster that destroyed Pompeii also preserved it and over time archaeologists have uncovered a unique record of its daily life — roads, buildings, municipal services, paintings, mosaics, artifacts, and even preserved bodies. Ongoing excavations at the site provides an ever-evolving picture of everyday life at the height of the Roman Empire.
When: Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays
