Pompeii: The Immortal City

In just 24 hours, Pompeii and neighboring Herculaneum were buried by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. 

The site was lost for centuries and remained almost entirely untouched until 1748. Today, the most advanced scientific research brings to light the extraordinary achievements of Pompeii and the Roman world. 

Plunge into the heart of the drama and ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii. Spectacular immersive moments allow you to experience the destruction of the city and to identify with the inhabitants of that time, immobilized by the volcano’s ashes.

Through artwork, interactive mechanical devices, and multimedia experiences, you will embark on a journey through time into the daily life of a first-century Roman town.

Find yourself in the center of events as you hear and feel the roar of the volcano erupting before your eyes. Discover how the excavation of Pompeii in the 18th century influenced the development of archaeology as a scientific study. Play the role of archaeologist through the use of digital interactives and replicas of artifacts from Pompeii.

Although this exhibition is appropriate for people of all ages, some of the art features era-specific depictions of men and women without clothing.

 


My daughter and I went and we were both impressed. It was just awe-inspiring to be so close to things that old, knowing that real people used them, lived with them. Then to see two of the cast molds at the end — that made everything real.

Additional health and safety precautions include:

  • Timed-entry tickets
  • Face coverings required
  • Hand sanitizing stations available
