This remarkable exhibit is coming to Orlando Science Center for a limited run for the summer of 2020. Orlando will be one of only four sites in the United States to host Pompeii: The Immortal City.
The exhibit will be on display at Orlando Science Center from June 6, 2020 to September 7, 2020.
Conceived by the Galileo Museum of Florence and the National Archaeological Museum of Naples, this exhibition plunges the visitor into the heart of the drama and ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii. Spectacular immersive moments allow the visitor to experience the destruction of the city and to identify with the inhabitants of that time, immobilized by the volcano’s ashes.
Over 100 archaeological items originating from Pompeii, including a large number being exhibited for the first time, demonstrate the knowledge that the Romans had about nature as well as their scientific and technical know-how at the moment Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D.
Pompeii: The Immortal City is funded in part by Orange County Government through the Arts & Cultural Affairs Program.
