About A Day In Pompeii
What nature destroyed, it also preserved. A Day in Pompeii
offers 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 as if sealed in a time capsule.
Exceptional artifacts, digital re-creations, activity carts, and
historical enactors provide a fascinating look at life in the
ancient Roman Empire of Pompeii. For more information visit www.dmns.org.
A Day in Pompeii is based on the design and presentation
developed by the Gulf Coast Exploreum, the Science Museum of
Minnesota, the San Diego Natural History Museum, and Discovery
Place. Organized by Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici
di Napoli e Pompei (SANP).
