A Day in Pompeii


Opens Friday, September 14, 2012

What nature destroyed, it also preserved. Hundreds of exceptional artifacts offer an insider's glimpse into the daily life -- and tragic end -- of this ancient Roman city that was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. On display are archaeological treasures that lay buried in Pompeii's ruins, preserved as if sealed in a time capsule. Highlights include marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, gold coins, everyday household items, and more. Visitors will uncover the treasures of a city steeped in legend, examine casts of the volcano's victims frozen in their last moments, and discover the power of volcanoes past and present.
