Big Pompeii Announcement for Orlando Science Center Members

Pompeii: The Immortal City is on its way, and the good news keeps on coming! Orlando Science Center is thrilled to announce that members can experience this summer blockbuster experience FREE!


In the past, large blockbuster exhibits such as this required an upcharge for Science Center members. However, thanks to the support of Orange County Government through the Arts and Cultural Affairs program, a grant from the Tourist Development Tax Blockbuster Fund has covered many of the substantial costs to bring the exhibit to Orlando and we are passing the savings onto you!

Through art, music and an immersive 360 projection experience, Pompeii: The Immortal City will transport guests back in time to 79 AD. Orlando will be one of only four sites in the United States to host this state of the art exhibit. 

"This award exemplifies Orange County’s belief in the value of arts and cultural organizations to our community,” said Orlando Science Center CEO and President JoAnn Newman. “We are grateful for their support and look forward to presenting this unique exhibition and featured programming to the communities of Orange County and the greater Central Florida region.”

Along with FREE entry, annual members will be invited to attend an exclusive Member-Only Preview of the exhibit before it opens to the general public. Pompeii: The immortal City will be a timed ticket experience, so guests are encouraged to reserve tickets in advance. As an added benefit, Orlando Science Center members will be able to reserve their complimentary tickets before they are available to the general public!
